    Pros

    You can volunteer to work events the company is involved in. The atmosphere is relatively relaxed and people are generally not uptight.

    Cons

    People are put in positions they are not qualified for but they got them only because they performed well in the interview or there was nowhere else to put them after a re-org. Directors have total control over this and it has appeared obvious favoratism is at play. Align closely with Directors to make your life easier. Cross them and you will be shown the door or at a minimum never move ahead in the company as long as they're there. Re-orgs are common and happen every 6 months - 2 years. It's difficult to get into a groove and really get proficient at your job. HR has a regular and inconsistent pattern of not following their own processes.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to your people, not just act like you're listening to give the impression you care what people think. Contrary to what you think, you don't know everything or at least more than the worker bees do. The rest of the workforce may actually have something of value to contribute other than carrying out your orders.
