    Pros

    Great corporate culture driven by some wonderful, committed people. The chance, albeit increasingly diminished, to help people achieve something - be it athletic or otherwise.

    Cons

    An upper-management increasingly divorced from the company's culture, if not actively (sorry) opposed to it. The company is a patchwork of offices, ideas, and technologies. There is little to no attempt to combine them or share best practices across the larger whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be dicks. Seriously, simple common courtesy will get you far with employees. Don't say one thing (ROI uber alles) and do another (commit heavy resources to your pet projects). Let the employees' passion drive the company.
