    The open environment is a huge step forward for the company. It definitely helps garner a better sense of community. We also have the option to work from home when necessary and you're given the freedom to determine how you want to work. As long as the work gets done correctly and on time, you can approach it anyway you want.

    Cons

    Recent regime changes make things seem unstable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the positive vibe and open door policy.

    Pros

    The company is open to change and new, fresh ideas. Beautiful, relaxed office, even boasting a chandelier! There's also a free snack bar for employees and guests to enjoy.

    Cons

    As with any large corporation, it's difficult to get to know everybody, and the different departments don't intermingle as much as I'd like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to those employees who just started - their fresh eyes are invaluable.
