    Pros

    The people are nice, perhaps nice to a fault. Casual dress, absolutely no pressure to produce. Perfect environment for a slacker.

    Cons

    Communication from the top down is abhorrent. Minimum vacation days, no accountability for those who do not perform. The strong employees carry the inept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You must begin to think as if you are working to become a top flight company instead of a company that treads water.

    Disapproves of CEO
