    Pros

    Was given an excellent relocation package when when job moved to new location. Nice office and diverse work environment.

    Cons

    Limited advancement opportunties. Unable to establish growth with performance reviews.

    Advice to Management

    It would be awesome if steps for advancement were spelled out. You can work really hard and not know what management wants in order to gain promotion. Senior managment are great people but keep their distance from the worker bee empoyees. I would like to see senior management attend staff meetings for teambuilding. No company is perfect but their is hope for positive outcome here.
