    Pros

    Profitable company.
    Lean
    If you're a star - you will be recognized.
    Employees have autonomy to sink or swim.

    Cons

    Decentralized organization, so if you need face time - you may not get it.
    Always focused on the next deal -- sometimes at the expense of long term planning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the BU's and products that have a chance to rapidly grow.
