    Pros

    Nice co-workers and made some long-term friendships along the way. Many of these friends have also left. Some remain.

    Cons

    After the new CEO came on board, things changed quickly and not for the best. They lost sight of their market to compete in the world of technology, when the reality is their technical branch is not agile or responsive to change. I saw clients promised things that could not be delivered and when I saw things were not going to get better, my opinions/expertise were not valued, I simply resigned. Best decision I ever made.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on content and develop it to exist in the new market.

    Pros

    -Great, friendly people. The people make this company a place to look forward to everyday. : )
    -Benefits are decent, including AETNA medical, Guardian dental & vision, Lincoln Life & AD&D, 401k with co. matching, employee appreciation events, etc.
    -laid back environment, flexible schedule depending on personal appointments, no formal dress code
    -management is approachable and down-to-earth,; egos left at the door

    Cons

    -Human resources are tight so many employees are handling a lot of different jobs
    -Company is start-up in environment so we are still a growing company who has a long ways to becoming more established

    Advice to Management

    -When we become successful, tenured employees and worker bees should definitely be the first in line to be appreciated.
