Pros

Intelligent and talented coworkers, flexible and creative, rewards hard work. From my expirience I would say this is one of the most rewarding and interesting jobs I have ever had. Great place to launch a career as it can open many doors down the road.

Cons

Disjointed organization, communication between department needs work.

Issues with the competitive landscape of the industry. While being at a smaller company has many advantages in certain arenas it is difficult to compete with the resources and manpower of some of its top competitors. It is a case where the company needs to carefully pick their battles moving forward to avoid getting stepped on by the two headed giant.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Flatter structure. Our advantage is being the smaller and more flexible player in our field.

    Pros

    Great place to start a career and learn about the industry and landscape. The environment is very flat so there isn't any great barrier between yourself and management and even senior management. There are a lot of opportunities as we are still growing to find what you like to do. Just need to be proactive as you create your own path.

    Cons

    Pay can be a lot lower at the start but no indication of how much potential there is. No one helps you so much with career progression, there isn't any advice given, but more a chance for you to create opportunities for yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    good job.
