ProsGood culture, beer hour is nice, gym, nice location.

ConsManagement is too young and inexperienced. Work is based on who you know-like a giant high school. Pros listed above have nothing to do with work.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart looking at the process and stop just blaming PEOPLE. Changes have been made but the same problems and issues are there-they have not gone away. Hmmm wonder why? Get rid of everyone manager on up and bring in adults from the outside.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
