    Pros

    Great people, fun culture, interesting technology, work hard play hard, fast paced.

    Cons

    Limited career advancement opportunities, work overload at times if you are in sales or product management. Big pay gaps to move laterally. Limited training and development. Pay is not competitive for more senior roles unless you are at the very top.

    Pros

    Has an excellent corporate culture. Great relationship between management levels. Active programs to keep you energized and informed about duties and responsibilities.

    Cons

    Compensation needs to be improved across the board to stay competitive. Can be vague with position/job duty changes.

    Advice to Management

    Look at compensation increases and be more proactive with position changes. Management can often be hesitant to move or reassign co-workers when changes clearly need to be made.

    Pros

    Great family atmosphere, most managers encourage innovation, great benefits, profit sharing, and it's just plain fun. Experienced management, and a company that really knows how to execute its business plan.

    Cons

    Career advancement is an issue (management has acknowledged this, and I hope they are working on some changes in this department,) and the money could be better.

    Advice to Management

    A little more money, and throw some new titles around, please.

    Great culture - friendly people, lots of social activities, good vibe.
    Great at helping you manage a life outside of work. Very lenient on scheduling time off, mid-day appts and misc. personal obligations

    Lots of opportunities for new career experiences but most are lateral moves and involve no merit increase.
