    Pros

    The company has an excellent attitude towards customer service and truly believes in the value of doing right by the customer. Casual and fun work enviroment. Great place to build confidence for a young porfessional.

    Cons

    As in many organizations, Your opportunities to advance will be somewhat dicatated by what click you are in or not in. Company takes on massive projects that are then bogged down in endless meetings while actual progress slows to a crawl.

    Advice to Management

    Advance people on their merits, not who they are friends with. Imploy better project management so that less time is spent in wasteful "exploratory" meetings.
