    Pros

    Good opportunities for internal career development
    dedicated people passionate about what we do

    Cons

    overseas offices are treated like the poor relations with a visible lack of trust from Corporate
    managers not empowered to manage because of the heavy level of control

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    new blood at the senior staff level needed to bring a new way of thinking, best practice
    devolve decision making responsibility to the lowest reasonable level to become more agile
    trust until that trust is broken

    Pros

    Exciting company - constantly changing / growing / evolving.
    Lots of people have been here for years so it must be good.
    Nice campus in Hercules

    Cons

    Looks like a company that grew too fast and does not have the processes to sustain the growth.
    Something feels like it is still managed like a cornershop, which can be frustrating.
