    Pros

    laid back environment lots of smart passionate people, flexible schedule.

    Cons

    draconian security, broken equipment tended to take forever to get repaired. Bad relationships with our venders. Middle management took more abuse than lower level employees

    Advice to Management

    Corporate should have let its regional buyers make its purchasing decisions.
