    It's still great despite losing some of the culture that made it special.

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance.
    Talented Rackers are recognized and developed quickly.
    Management is mostly receptive to ideas.
    There's a lot of flexibility in career pathing.
    It's a generally friendly and respectful environment.

    Cons

    The company has had growing pains which have stifled some of the culture and innovation.
    Management is slow to get rid of low-performing Rackers, which causes a drain on morale for high-performers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order for the company to flourish long-term, it has to be more agile. Automation should be priority number one.

    Middle Management needs to be more decisive and start cutting the dead weight employees. It causes disengagement for the people that actually care when there is no discipline for repeated underperformance.
