    The work was very easy. The only challenging part was picking up new tools and getting set up. Other than that it wasn't really challenging.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to grow within organization. If you work hard, you are compensated and provided latitude to work on other projects. flexible hours. The culture is going through a significant, yet very positive, change and internal programs are being added to support employees to better themselves, not just be more productive at work. Big push on wellness and community involvement.

    Some disfunction within senior management related to communication across departments. Legacy employees fighting change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on the path towards expansion into other markets and continue to embrace change.
