Good learning

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsThe smallest public company, which means (for a mid level manager) a good opportunity to learn how to run a public company without the complexity of a large corporation
Excellent work-life balance. You can keep your previous lifestyle. No pressure.

ConsNo pressure. Company stock is flat for years (except for a single peak due to change in financial reporting)
No pressure = no product innovation

Advice to Senior ManagementDelegate. Empower mid level management. Talent will follow
