    Great co-workers, clean facility, and gym with a pool table and ping pong table.

    Pros

    New execs are much better at walking the talk and seem to have set a good direction for the company. Having the company in a growth mode makes everybody much more excited and engaged.

    Cons

    Still seem to have a do more with less attitude. New acquisition... well, just add it to your project list... but you can't remove anything. Oh, and you can't hire more people.

    Advice to Management

    Just seems like management needs to prioritize and let people say no to certain projects or be wiling to invest the people or resources to do it right.
