    Pros

    Great company with great working environment. Smart people, great product, solid leadership. Supports time off for community service. Lots of room for growth. V2MOM process brings good alignment across company.

    Cons

    Lack of process, planning is poor in some areas. Some people in management believe that we are still a startup, which can be limiting. Staffing is lean and staff are very, very busy!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep leading the way!

    Pros

    Pay is great.
    Company is growing.
    Other compensation is great and includes
    - Stock incentives
    - Well stocked kitchens with drinks and snacks
    - Paid days to volunteer in the community
    - Strong commitment to the environment
    - Yearly bonuses
    Management recognizes and acknowledges contributions

    Cons

    With such fast growth teams can get out of touch with each other and priorities can shift so work you've spend a lot of time and energy on can quickly go by the wayside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Best I've seen so far, I'd say just keep doing it
