    Pros

    Great company culture. The place is lean with bright enthusiastic people. It's fast pace, benefits are good such as bonuses, and stock options.

    Cons

    Work life balance may be difficult as with most start-ups. Personal growth is hard because there are not many positions opened.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out ways to help individuals grow instead of losing them because they are stuck in the same level/position for 5+ years.

    Pros

    This company offered great advancement opportunites. Promotions for exceptional workers were made available. I would recommend to others for working with a similar company.

    Cons

    This company has been bought out and is no longer in business, additionally this company had exceptional waste when it came to spending money, sometimes they also focused more on their sub-agents instead of their own employees.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Great team and other teams were always fun and collaborative regardless of differing in opinions. Overall belief that our personal development was important and transparency was a requirement.

    Lots of cooks in the kitchen often made it hard to get things done, but we always found a way to deliver.

    Pros

    very laid back atmosphere however unfortunately the higher tier groups have alot of negativity. Even though they have high negativity they still prove to be very resourceful in resolving issues.

    Cons

    Financial hardships unfortunately caused severe issues and hurt moral very badly. Company has had several sets of layoffs that unfortunately resulted in mixed feelings. i personally watched my brother, lover, and best friend all get let go because they were deemed not important enough to keep.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to let the hard times get you down
