Pros_some_ of the talent is top notch.

ConsTight budgets, especially travel. Lower than industry salary. There are too many people that have stayed at their position for way too long.

Advice to Senior ManagementPrune bottom 10%. Start with the managers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
