    Pros

    Easily attainable goals if you are driven, motivated Lots of Mobility 4 weeks PTO , 2 weeks sick time Good benefits, 401k match etc Management is great in my experience

    Cons

    Lack of transparency on pay for other positions in the line of business Redundant, can burn out from time to time They are sending us back to the office full time with no option for hybrid... After proving we (speaking for myself) can produce and hit our comp goals, we should be given the option to WFH at least part time.
