    - Benefits could be better, but they seem to be making progress
    - Not exactly the sexiest industry, though the added value to consumers and businesses is clear

    Focus on growing a strong team and incremental revenues and the rest will fall into place.

    Pros

    - Great people (intelligent, caring, fun, +)
    - Constantly Improving in every aspect
    - Transparent
    - Empower employees
    - Flat structure (to the point of calling the founders on their cells)

    Cons

    - Very fast growth that leads to some growing pains, but everyone is aware and headed down the right path
    - Though every company has this issue, communication can be improved on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add and think of communication as one of the key points on certain projects/structure changes. In fact, over communicate!
