    Pros

    Great company culture, casual dress, lots of snacks, etc. Chip Paucek is THE MAN. Great CEO. Tons of potential for promotion within the company.

    Cons

    Growing quickly, so tend to be a little bit unorganized. I moved frequently when I worked there, they don't always have room for people, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Whip the HR department into shape. They aren't very responsive and it sort of delays things as a whole when that is a problem.
