    Pros

    Lots of knowledge, flexible hours, office, some processes are really good

    Cons

    The key problem is that the company lost true leaders and the existing ones have been wildly praising their own importance by over-exaggerating anything that may sound nice. This cultivated truly ego-centric behavior (was there before, but not that dramatic!!), completely misaligned with original values that focused on teamwork and actual achievements. Biggest priority became is how you report, make an excellent selling story and present to the management without sound criticism and deep insights. Showing off and influencing others for bad decisions became the core competence. Anything or anyone who moves to get this bubble transparent and facts-measured is obstructed and often destroyed at early stage. Amazing sensitivity and aggression for changing marketing agencies also had a bad smell. In a nutshell, big investment in HR branding, real disappointment in doing real job.

    Advice to Management

    Make it real or go home.
