      Pros

      - Can take good vacation - Paternity leaves - Nothing as such

      Cons

      - They still work on 20 year old technology. Only a handful of people get to play with new stuff like docker, k8s etc - Most of the folks are there from their university and they havent seen how the world outside works. So their view of distributed system is so narrow - They throw money at any problem to solve it. Hire contract workers to deal with stuct state machines rather than actually solving for one. - Extremely extrovert orientated place. You need to be "famous" in firm to succeed.
