    Pros

    - Amazing people
    - Good opportunity for growth, they reward those that can make their KPIs
    - Feels more like a flat structure, it's OK to approach VPs and issues
    - They're planning for immense growth (whether they get it or not is another thing) so they promote from within

    Cons

    - Compensation is severely lacking and not market competitive
    - At the junior level, you're held to KPIs that have little control over (utilization, but if the senior leadership isn't selling, you can't be utilized) and thus penalized even if you're a top performer
    - Don't invest in growing their people - 3 years with the company and was denied basic training every year due to budget cutbacks
    - Moving to an "up or out" policy
    - So focused on cost cutting that they won't give you the tools needed to do your jobs (poor travel booking software, performance management system is antiquated, expense reimbursement tool is from the '90s, corporate cell provider is TMobile which doesn't have coverage in many areas, laptops are 5 years old and slow)
    - Senior leadership is leaving in droves to competitors, doubt they will be able to sustain any growth without an acquisition
    - Company is becoming silo'ed, and it's hard to get experience in other business units and geographies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management talks the talk, but when it comes down to dollars, they won't walk the walk. Put some money where your mouth is: invest in training for your people, retain your top performers (even if that means keeping them on the bench), give your employees the tools they need to do their jobs more efficiently.
