    Pros

    An exciting fast growing company that is great to its employees. They hire top notch individuals and encourage promotion within the organization. Very pleasant environment.

    Cons

    Corporate policy on consultants. They eliminated some consultants that were very much needed at the time. While this was a business decision, they should have backfilled these positions with full time employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support your employees.

    Pros

    Leaders and managers really appreciate you, and they challenge you professionally. Pay and benefits are well above average. It is a culture of accountability. It is ill-suited for people who want to do nothing and collect a paycheck. Telework options available to many.

    Cons

    You have to wait one year for the company's 401(k) match.

    Advice to Management

    Management should continue focusing on employee engagement and maintain communication flow. I have complete trust and faith in the leadership here.
