    Pros

    At a time, employees were able to work from home. When this changed, you were given the option to either relocate to one of their offices (Pittsburgh or Houston) or accept a severance. Relocation to a U.S. city for a Canadian employee with a family isn't exactly considered a viable option for many people.

    Cons

    Low salaries, limited training opportunities, inferior laptops and mobile phones for telecommuters. Promotions/additional job opportunities were also limited for telecommuters.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    For many positions, they take the time necessary to ensure you're trained to an adequate level so as to not "throw you to the wolves" when it comes time to take over a position entirely. Benefits packages are superb. Compensation is fantastic compared to friends who are operating in similar positions with other companies in the area.

    Cons

    Long work hours at times, but these can often be offset with Fridays off. Only major con would be that internal systems need a major overhaul compared to other companies of similar size.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on internal efficiency improvements, e.g. updating systems to be more reliable and less of a hassle to deal with on a day-to-day basis.
