ProsBenefit Package. Outperforming peers in a difficult market

ConsIf you can afford a Nanny this is the place to work; if not.....keep looking if you want to attend those extracurricular activities your children are involved in.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to those who actually do the work; without them the company would not exist! Would it really be so terrible to give up some of your bonus money and implement an all employee profit sharing program or all employee bonus program to reward the 'little' people?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
