    Pros

    Treat employees very well and allow folks to work from homes which is also convenient. Fairly flat organization also makes direct communication simpler.

    Cons

    Calcified at the top end of the company. Multiple acquisitions taken together are not necessarily coherent. Encourage remote working however reward folks in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Become much clearer in outlining the company strategy. Salary and benefits are competitive for a company this size however folks need to clearly understand the mission and realize that the company is going to invest to win.

    Pros

    Willingness to change
    Free snacks
    Free fancy coffee
    Opportunities to move laterally to better fit your skills once hired
    Work from home one day a week
    Good age, experience, and gender mix
    Updated office
    Gym
    Paid volunteer days (2 a year)
    Good 401K, health care and donation matching
    They really do care about things other than money (volunteering, health, and work/life balance)

    Cons

    Not many, just like anywhere you could get a bad manager, but you have many opportunities to change position if this is the case.
    Lower salaries sometimes causes the best talent to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Trust your employees to keep doing well.

    Pros

    Very structured company with good products.

    Cons

    Structured but not organized. The usual suspect: people not a fit for their role responsibilities in their position. Favoritism abounds throughout the company with people competing for the right to be in the 'in' crowd. Felt like an outsider most of the time. Not much communicating between the middle levels of management.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you hire people that are a cultural fit besides being the right fit for the position.
