    Pros

    Great flexibility. Great hours. Nice people. Casual atmosphere. Casual dress code.

    Cons

    Negative overflow from employees who are miserable and think they are overworked/underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the negative energy in the office. There are plenty of people who are happy to be here, happy to have jobs and willing to work for a paycheck. The generation of 'what's in it for me' and 'enough about you, let's talk about me' needs a life lesson or two. I recommend that YOU, whoever you are, get out as fast as you can, before someone deservedly shows you the door.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, flexible benefits, flexible dress code, even flexibility in work duties. I was hired to do one task and after mastering that and expressing interest in other areas, have been given ample opportunity to pursue those things. Management is always pushing us to explore what else we can do, would like to do - promoting from within when possible. Creative, collaborative environment is nice when everyone is on board and motivated. Free coffee. Oddly complimentary mixtures of personality. Benefits are unheard of - some aspects are better than the Federal Government! Work/life balance is awesome, family friendly - whether it's your kids, your partner, your grandma or your dog. All are important and all are welcome.

    Cons

    That said, occasionally, a bad egg will try to bring spirits down, but 97% of the population here is glad to be here. Telecommute is restricted to bad weather days. Once in a red moon, you have to work late (red moons happen 4x a year). Maid service does a less than average job in the community bathrooms. There are people in the world who have had no life experience and don't yet realize how great this place is, not being just a number on the payroll roster. That it's called work for a reason - you are expected to do something in exchange for your salary and if you have good sense, you'll do something you enjoy. Those people make it annoying to work with at times because they will have to figure it out, just like the rest of the adult world did.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. This place has grown significantly better since I started working here. Continue to be honest while building up the people who work with/for you. Some people aren't mature enough to handle the real world and the way a successful business functions. Stomp out any snakes in the grass before they can poison the rest.
