Good place to work, however lack of communication between management and employees hurts.

Pros

Good People and work environment. Fast Paced and Challenging. The compensation seems right for the positions being held (if negotiated well)

Cons

Lack of communication between the management and employees about the exact direction of the company. Plenty of broad spectrum directional communication that isn't really clear. Plenty of lateral movement, very little upward movement. Very little recognition and very high demand on employees. Seem to be drawn into work even during "off" days.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some major changes need to happen, especially in the mid/lower management. Sometimes you need to step back before going forward.

No opinion of CEO
