A life-changing experience!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsHuge ambition
Driven people
Big enough to chase the dreams

ConsGetting big, impersonal, and unwieldy
Inefficient - empowerment leads to uncoordinated and wasteful action

Advice to Senior ManagementRealize that people do business with people they like; sellers sell what they know; employees recommend what they feel great about. EVERY individual employee is valuable in this equation, not just the top 1%.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
