    Pros

    Room for growth though the company. Knowledge is never held from you. If there is something you want to know they insure you know it.

    With this company changes come very fast and often. No time to settle for recent changes and then boom new change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push harder for employee incentives.
