    Pros

    Good experience, fast-paced, most people around you are very motivated.

    Cons

    High level of disparity in the way management treats employees. No rhyme or reason to promotion process. Lots of politics. High level of burnout/turnover and complaining around you constantly which is demotivating. Most people do the job of 1.5-2 employees as the company prides itself in being "lean". Company spends very little on keeping employees happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to learn to respect employees equally. Managers need to be trained together so they behave cohesively as a group. Level of politics need to decrease in order for people to stay.
