Pros

A lot of smart and good, nice people. The company has a policy of working with people's strengths instead of forcing them into a mold or comparing to those considered "best." In my experience, the policy is actually implemented by management, and I tremendously value being appreciated for what I have to offer.

Cons

Well, does "measurements" give you goosebumps? If not, the company's mission may not be so exciting to you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The strengths approach to employees is an enlightened approach to management -- and a winner for all. Keep emphasizing it.
