    Pros

    If you're male and into drinking, sports, and poker, Cutler will be a good cultural fit. Should have an aggressive, Type A personality and like winning.

    Cons

    You'll have a boss that doesn't follow through on promises or keep you informed of the status of your projects. Coworkers aren't openly hostile but will take advantage of you if they can. You will be ostracized if you don't have a winner-takes-all value system.

    Advice to Management

    This company desperately needs to hire a real manager.
