    Pros

    low pressure environment
    nice campus

    many layers of management. I never met, face-to-face, my manager's manager. As a result, management seems out of touch.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend better communication. I would recommend flattening the management structure. Run Simple has not been realized internally.
