    Pros

    Work hard, play hard environment.

    Cons

    This is a highly political environment. Must have the ability to play the political game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your managers and not just your leadership. Your leadership may not be as in tune with managers as you think.

    Pros

    Overall this is a good company with good people. Relatively stable industry, Good work life balance, Fun corporate atmosphere, Culture of celebration, Good benefits

    Cons

    The company isn't good at developing internal talent. It is difficult for finance employees to be given their chance to succeed and to move around to interesting new roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be skeptical of "I know everything" attitude in long-time entrenched sales leaders because with that attitude they may be doing more harm than good.
