    Pros

    Well-managed balance sheet. Company is financially secure and financially conservative.

    Cons

    Growth is minimal. There is very little opportunity for personal growth. A number of folks are over-qualified for their daily tasks. As such, if you work there too long, you get stuck and become uncompetitive. It seems like several long-tenured folks are there because they are stuck, not because it's a great upside opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't grow to the next level if the culture is dominated by one person. You've got to get new management that is both empowered and capable of leading & building. Also, when doing training programs, you should consider investing in reputable, industry-respected education; not the home-grown stuff you currently rely upon. As it currently exists, anyone with an ounce of ambition and flexibility cannot afford to stay at Calypso.
