Pros* There is so much of opportunity to grow.
* They let you make mistakes no matter how expensive or how many.
* There is a person from every field to assist you.
* Customer obsessed
* Always want to simplify

Cons*Job Roles are limited
*Hard to get a promotion
*Salary is not competitive

Advice to Senior ManagementBeing customer centric is good, but if you have unhappy employees they will leave, please consider improving compensation to be on power with Competitors. And listen to your employees not managers who just want to take up more projects and show how much GMS they are generating.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
