    Pros

    -Great work environment
    -Management is helpful and wants you to thrive
    -Flexible hours
    -Wide range of project to work on
    -Small workforce; everyone knows and is pleasant with everyone else

    Cons

    -Very little room for growth
    -Salary/compensation is a little lacking, but the upward momentum will hopefully change that for future employees
    -I haven't been here too long, but I can't honestly think of anything else wrong with the company at this point in time.

  7. Decent place to work but not much opportunity for growth

    Pros

    Flexible and laid back working environment. Nice people. 403(b) is good (10%). Annual leaves starting at 2 weeks to 3 weeks after 5th year. Can carry forward 240 hrs of annual leave.

    Cons

    Salary can be low. Only 2 layers of positions: entry staffs or directors. Directors never quit and there is no opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Create some mid level position to retain some good staff.

    Pros

    The profit sharing plan is really great. Health care is fully covered. Chance to do many different jobs and connect with others.

    Cons

    Small company so budget does not allow for lots of extra training. Overall it is pretty good though and a nice place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Doing a great job with direction and new technology. Would like to be able to hire additional staff to handle new loads.
