    Fun and high energy environment

    No loyalty on behalf of the company, no development or on-boarding/training/coaching.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont be so quick to let knowledge, experience and commitment go. Cultivate and work with people to grow your business rather than a sink or swim policy.
