    Pros

    I really enjoy my colleagues--professional, very good at what they do and a pleasure to be around. I also appreciate that the company continued to pay bonuses and raises during the 2015 downturn.

    Cons

    Company 401(k) contribution does not go above 2.5% until you've been on staff 5+ years. We have a cultural tendency to unnecessarily complicate processes and analyses.

    Advice to Management

    Strong leadership and focus from the top 2014-15. Keep it coming.

    Pros

    Great Managers. They take the time to listen to employees while allowing each employee to make free decisions within their work groups

    Cons

    No cons to mention. Every company has minor employee issues. But what company doesn't. Nothing I would consider major
