It was a chaotic experience as the company was going through a bankruptcy and a lot of turn-over at the C-Suite level.

Pros

Very nice and dedicated employees, a relaxed work environment, great products, very positive atmosphere, good salary and lots of benefit options.

Cons

Lack of strong corporate leadership and a lot of employee turnover especially at the senior leader level, lack of current research to drive decision making, unclear driving goals and objectives, lack of accountability.

Advice to Management

Need to provide clear direction and stick to that direction.
