    Pros

    Work/Life Balance is good
    Flexible work options
    Co-workers

    Cons

    Too much middle management
    Hard to get promoted - no control over your career path
    Difficult to move across organizations
    Stock options are worthless

    Advice to Management

    Re-price the stock options to boost the employee morale (those who joined when options were still granted).
    Flatten the hierarchy. There are too many cooks in the kitchen (decision-makers) and priorities are overlapping or changing.
