    Pros

    Fun work environment. Lots of self driven work atmosphere. Very fair and even above average starting pay.

    Lack of feeling like your work is important due to massive corporate style company.

    Need to talk more with employees about why things are the way they are. Also should make sure older employees don't talk down about company before they get a chance to get their own impressions.
