    Pros

    High quality of employees, positive working environment, and excellent benefits. Management decisions are fairly transparent and data-driven. The employees are typically great people to work with. Office politics not excessive. Contributions and productivity are recognized. Career development is fostered.

    Cons

    The work load is greater than it should be for optimal work-life balance. Thee is some inequity in title between functional areas. Strengthen core areas rather before expanding into new areas.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be as transparent as possible in all decisions, communicate frequently and be accessible to more than just direct reports. Value "data-driven" decisions, foster and reward innovation.
