    Pros

    Flexibility, products, resources. The changed to the new review model should improve the collaboration between teams and individuals and make employees more productive.

    Cons

    Lack of African American representation within the company. Not sure too many black folks will want to move to the Pacific Northwest, but it's a great place to live.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to implement changes similar to the new review model.
