    Pros

    Work/Life balance, Positive Energetic Atmosphere,Cutting Edge technologies, Excellent Career Growth, Cool Office

    Cons

    They don't spend money just to spend it, which isn't a terrible thing but is reflected in avg. salaries

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The main advice is to keep doing what they're doing for the most part. I took a 20% pay cut to come here. It was hard, but I hit a point in my career where money was less important than overall happiness. I wanted to be in an environment where people were competent, smart, but also had fun while they did their job. It was a hard and scary decision to join the team, but it's the best decision I've made professionally. I think the main room for improvement is continue thinking about more experienced talent, how to attract and keep people with a number of years' experience. I think management is doing this, but continue to keep the 20 somethings in mind as they become 30, 40 and beyond, meaning heftier retirement benefits and more family friendly policies. It does feel young which is actually one of the reasons I came aboard, to add some experience while being energized by up-and-comers here, but if there's any room for improvement, that's be it.
