    Pros

    - Smart, inspiring executive team

    - Fast paced with lots of opportunity to contribute

    - High energy organization

    - Practices what it preaches from a talent mobility and learning perspective

    - Focused on leadership development

    - Transparent approach to communication internally, which empowers and informs allowing people to feel a part of the larger vision and mission

    - Just great people

    Cons

    - Executives tend to get into the details more than they probably should

    - Large remote workforce that could use some additional engagement by corporate

    - Company has great ideas and means well but could use organizational readiness and change management help internally to successfully launch new initiatives - this is starting to improve, however.

    Advice to Management

    Keep empowering your people and listening to your clients and the company will only get better. I truly enjoy my leadership team, peers and the mission of the company. If you continue to remind people of this we'll keep growing, making our clients successful, and attracting the best and brightest in the industry.

    Cons

    Lower base pay then market dictates, on target earnings are below industry peers as well.

    Pros

    I have worked at CSOD for just about 4 years and when people ask what is so great about it I tell them that I have been giving the ability to help create an environment that I want to be at. With that I mean my voice is heard in all areas from how to spend my work hours, how to bring my personal interests (eating, sports, games, etc) into the professional world. Talk about creating the life you love, CSOD has given me an amazing opportunity to not just work but love where I work.

    Cons

    Mobility within the organization is always possible but not always easy. Often times transitioning within the organization you get paid less than external employees and the process to transition lacked visibility and communication.

    Advice to Management

    Make internal transfers easier
