ProsSuccessful within the industry. Innovative products. Nice building.

ConsCompany does not invest in infrastructure or technology outside of product areas. No professional development opportunities. l Has a tendency to hire from outside rather than grow and promote from within.

Advice to Senior Management. Too much emphasis and reliance on metrics reporting rather than actually talking with employees to find out what is going on.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
