Pros

People, Management, Technology, and Customers that you cannot beat combined with good pay for performance, work place flexibility, and driven culture for those who like to compete and win.

Cons

Un-relenting pace can lead to crushing hours, making work life balance a continual struggle. Employees are the companies number one asset, but the perks and support systems do not reflect that comprehensively.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Open up to a partners and developers so that others can build on our platform and amplify our impact across the industry.
