    Pros

    Decent benefits, you can wear jeans to work, and most employees seem to genuinely care about each other and support one another.

    Cons

    Constantly in a state of flux. It seems to get bought and sold every other year and leadership changes are just as frequent. The company is ridiculously understaffed yet employees who don't really contribute aren't held accountable. Salaries are on the low end, unless you're an executive with modest experience they overpay to join the company. The company is about to integrate other firms owned by its new parent company and the timelines for those projects are overaggressive and unrealistic. Career opportunities and upward mobility are minimal for a company this size.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The place is on the verge of spinning out of control. Look, you have some great people there who genuinely care about doing a good job. But they are practically all burned out. Hold the underperforming and nonperforming employees accountable already! Psychologically, you have lost most of the good employees already. Most are looking to leave. If you have any prayer of retaining the talent that will get you through integration with the new parent company, you have to start recognizing them and fairly compensating them.
