Pros

Great culture, amazing office, nice little perks, fun environment, work from home optional.

Cons

Long hours, slow to promote, constant change is not always "smooth" change... more of a fly by the bootstraps kind of change.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay for performance!

    Pros

    A great nuruting environment that encourages innovation and individual freedoms. The company is truly concerned about the well being of its employees. The company works very hard to ensure that the integrity of the work environment. The compnay gives your the opportunity to learn and do a lot.

    Cons

    Too much of a locker room mentality/ old boys network, which interferes with and compromises the goals of the company and president. The "pay for performance" program is not properly administered. Some groups are paid for mediocre performance and other groups are not rewarded for outstanding performance. You are also asked to do a lot with limited resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen the purse strings and reward employees and individual employees for their tireless efforts. Acknowledge that it takes a lot to produce the products and reward those who make it happen.
