    Pros

    Friday family-style lunch, free Beer Thursdays, laid back environ, very knowledgeable & skilled coworkers, constant change of clients means large variety of skills acquired & used, flat management hierarchy, formerly friendly culture, culture of kindness

    Cons

    Increasingly poor communications due to deceivingly laid back nature, behind-the-scenes politics prefers certain employees especially partners & pals, workloads uneven per client's wishes, new management promotes info stovepiping, degrading in-person communications from changing management, art/design emphasis over technology/timeframes, design-centric culture, corporate overhead quickly growing, nowhere to rise to, longtimers have disproportionate sway, emphasis on free & fast over best practice

    Advice to Management

    Don't let corporate process degrade friendliness
