    Pros

    Fantastic people to work with. All of my teammates are super smart and nice. We help each other and we share ideas, so we can improve our results. Managers are easy to reach, always available to help us with some constructive feedback. I have a very competitive pay package for the work that I do, every year I got a nice salary raise based on merit. We all have a flexible schedule and a good work life balance, no need for overtime.

    Cons

    Nothing to complain about, no cons.

    Pros

    Happy with my job, I really feel that my work is appreciated, being an important part of business growth. Most of the customers are happy with our products, so they are nice and patient; it's easy to work with them. This company pays for certifications and learning stuff. The compensation is solid, pay on time, nice benefits package. The atmosphere is fun and positive.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be difficult to work with some clients, but, it's part of the job. Overall, the experience here is less stressful and more rewarding, compared to other companies, where I worked before.
