    Pros

    Excellent benefits ticks all the boxes and some,, forward-thinking, nice people overall, opportunities to learn about numerous products;

    Cons

    unclear paths to advancement; Goals not always articulated; numerous different managers a different one every 6 months; can feel "cultish" though it would classify as a nice cult

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is pretty impressive; middle management needs some work; shooting for the stars is great but remember to focus on the customer.
