What I learned: A lot about HPC/Clustering, caching, stack architecture, Puppet automation, Ruby, etc.
Management: Well-intentioned but under duress. Great people otherwise.
Co-workers: Exceptional. Second-to-none in both skill and personality.
Hardest part: Outages.
Most enjoyable: Camaraderie.
Open workspace, friendly and intelligent people, lots to learn and do.
Exceptional amount of work to be done, may cause panic-attacks in individuals without coping mechanisms.
