    Pros

    -No micromanagement. Everyone is encouraged to do their job the way they think will be the most productive. You're free to be creative in order to be successful!
    -Great culture. Dogs, jeans, high-fives, gongs, and some of the smartest people I've ever met!
    -This is by far the most innovative, progressive, and collaborative business I've had the pleasure of working for. I'm blown away at this huge corporation's ability to function like a start-up.
    -Upper management is very involved in all day-to-day processes. It's a flatter organization than most.

    Cons

    -It's hard work. Every day.
    -The organization is ever-changing which makes it difficult to "get used to" your job.

    Pros

    money, room for creativity/openness to new ideas and trying new things

    Cons

    many unreasonable expectations, 60 hour+ workweek

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about your people's work/life balance and do something to make it better instead of ignoring the problem or thinking just because your worklife was/is hard you have to make it so for all that come after you.
