Pros

Generally nice people, free drinks, and they bring in lots of lunches.

Cons

Senior Management consistently tolerates poor treatment of employees with little to no recourse. In one case, it took all of one Director's direct reports to quit before they finally fired that Director. On the other hand, they pushed out a Director who was very strong in her role. In that case, her direct reports resigned. Sub-par analytics and reporting infrastructure.

Advice to Management

Pay more attention to how your employees are treated. Get outside consulting help to recalibrate what backgrounds/skill sets are important in Director and above roles.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to remain as transparent as possible about company progress and future strategy.
