Great place to work in the short term, needs better management for long term.

Pros- free beer on fridays
- open concept office
- free dinner for staying late
- extremely friendly work environment

Cons- upper management won't allow for much innovation
- changes happen often without everyone in the loop, leading to a lot of overtime
- extremely tight deadlines

Advice to Senior Management- take your egos out to allow better feedback
- innovation takes time or more people, so give more time for projects or hire more people
- stop creating a secret society within upper management, breaking down those invisible barriers will create a more enjoyable work experience
