    Pros

    - Managers that care about your career and personal development
    - Great benefits - dollar per dollar match to 7% of salary in 401k - Having a ROTH 401k was a great attraction for me
    - Currently growing - Opportunities to move into your desired career path - Great for people who get hired on just to get in the door with a less desirable position
    - The company is big on following the kaizen philosophy
    - The company is moving a lot of positions from Boston to Westlake - Great growth opportunity as many of the Boston employees do not want to relocate - Not having a state income tax was probably a driver for the move

    Cons

    - Your desk moved frequently, within 6 months my team/department has relocated within the same building 2 times - I think they do this as it is the only way some people clean their desk
    - Slow moving changes
    - Lags behind industry changes - Needs to move faster with offering of ETF's

    Advice to Management

    - Allow employees to have self directed brokerage account even it it is only 25% of their 401k contributions
    - Offer student loan reimbursement as a benefit
