    Pros

    Technical expertise is valued. There is a lot of leeway given to perform my job function. When you do a good job, the contribution is recognized. I feel like I am running a small company inside the larger company, complete with schedule, budget, and staffing responsibilities, but without the administrative minutia. The company is growing overall, stable, and a great stock buy!

    Cons

    There is not good information flow from management to the workforce. There is even less information flow from business development to the workforce. Travel requirements seem to be rising, which is hard on family life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open with the vision of the company, the plans for growth, and the things that management is currently working on.
