    Pros

    Great products, great history of success, and current rapid growth, so many opportunities for hard working, ambitious people. A meritocracy that rewards 'A' players. Flexible schedule, working from home encouraged..."get your stuff done" instead of "putting in face time" enviroment. Having said that, workloads and expectations are heavy. Employee development through new opportunities instead of formal training programs, although tuition reimbursement is available. To sum up, a great place for

    Cons

    If you aren't a high preformer, you will likely not last long. Average pay for the industry. Long hours at times.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more A players and pay them as such.
