    Pros

    - Symphony acquisition is invigorating the company. They are investing in new businesses such as Aisle A, mobile, international expansion and RobotOatmeal.com. Big investments being made now will pay off in the future.
    - Lots of opportunity to contribute if you want to. Fast-paced culture, so you need to be proactive. - Definitely seem to be willing to promote from within if you are adding value. Monthly email circulated noting all the promotions for the month.
    - Weekly stand-up meetings with the CEO as well as quarterly company meetings where they review future business plans.
    - Extremely leading edge technology in some areas of the business.

    Cons

    - still some legacy employees who are disengaged. This is changing though and should not be a concern.
    - company is not as well-known as it should be. Kind of a hidden gem, but it would be nice for the company to have a higher profile.

    Pros

    Great employees whom work hard to achieve their goals

    Cons

    Poor exec decisions
    Behind the eight ball on innovation
    Favoritism from Execs for chosen employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be transparent with employees about plans for the company. With Symphony in place as a new parent company the goal is to drive down cost and ramp profits quickly so this company can be flipped. It's not about the employees or being a great place to work, it's about Symphony and the executive team cashing out.
