    Pros

    An excellent place for a self-starter to make great contributions to excellent products.
    Upper management really wants to make a difference in the quality of the products.

    Cons

    This is no place for someone who only wants to "get by." So you have to put your whole heart into what you're doing. If you're not a balanced person, you could over-extend yourself and burn out.

    Stress and ever-changing direction by management-not a good place to work.

    Pros

    Company has great product and will be a leader in its industry soon. Employees are team-spirited and fun to work with. Management was flexible if employees needed personal time off. HR provided good moral events.

    Cons

    High turnover, especially in management. Company keeps changing its direction which makes it difficult for employees to adjust to all the changes and diffficult for new officers to transition into the company's culture and objectives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open with employees. Don't just pitch how well the company is doing on the financial side and then layoff employees.
