    Pros

    Very relaxed work environment,
    Flexible hours,
    Some benefits and retirement packages. Personal space.

    Cons

    Too many well paid managers on the hierarchy between me and the CEO.
    Always changing upper management every two years.
    Regular layoffs of good talent.
    No bonus no raise.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the leadership consistent. Retain and value your talented individuals
