Pros

People are smart and very friendly, the perks are unbeatable, the pay is fair for corporate world, and there are always new interesting things going on.

Cons

Way too many meetings (can fill half of your daily calendar), sometimes poor internal information management (getting info on an earlier project can only be done by talking to someone who may be gone for weeks, rather than any centralized info mgmt center).

Advice to Management

I'm sure many of these things have been improved over the past few years, but I think the toughest thing will be giving people opportunities for growth, especially with such a young management team.
