    Pros

    Fantastic CEO. The company embraces diversity. Excellent growth and bright future. Reasonable work/life balance.

    Cons

    It is a very flat organization and as such, promotions are difficult. Some people stay in their jobs forever, and why wouldn't they? It limits opportunity for those trying to come up the ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let people stay in their jobs forever. Change is good! Encourage more movement across the company. Don't let poor leaders become senior management, leadership should be a necessary attribute for promotions.
