    Pros

    Small company that can change direction quickly, some good specialty people. Several units are doing well.

    Cons

    Lots of politics for a small company. Management is sheltered from the front lines and any criticism. Random firings and hirings are a hit to morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are a small company, fire middle management and open up direct lines of communication. Use your small size to your advantage.

    Decent place, too mired in old-school practices.
