    Pros

    + Company acquires big, interesting projects
    + Tasks are pretty well delegated and spread among employees
    + Great management style if you like to work independently and can actively ask for guidance when needed
    + Work fluctuates seasonally, so you may have busy quick-fire weeks where you're working dense 9-10 hr days and even weekends, and then you could have several weeks of down time to recoup and even spend time learning new skills
    + Flexible work day opportunities -- 7-3 some days, 9-5 other days, with overtime interspersed -- This is an international company, so someone is up and working somewhere any time of the day.
    + Good amount of Personal Time Off (PTO) offered. exp has done away with "sick days" and considers it all PTO
    + Small amount of 401k matching
    + People are generally easy to talk to here -- feel free to ask advice on how to go about completing a task if you're not sure

    Cons

    - Management style is pretty hands-off, so if you're uncomfortable asking your own questions and not being offered guidance this particular management style may be grating to your nerves
    - Deadlines can pop up seemingly out of nowhere (from a non-manager perspective) and pretty large deliverables need to be out-the-door the next day or two (This occurs at an acceptable amount at this time though.)
    - This is a consulting firm, so exp is running on 'client time', and may not necessarily offer the accurate/best amount of time to get a task done

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing a great job of trusting your employees to do their best job and not falling for the trap of micro-managing :)

    Open up the discussion of negotiating deadlines with employees. Though, I know this can be a fine line of taking up people's time with unnecessary meetings, and finding the best amount of time to get a task done efficiently and accurately.
