    Pros

    the company supports healthy work life balance overall, caveat being that it really depends on your manager. most managers work out fine as the company does make an honest effort to ensure people would fit culturally prior to hiring.

    the people make up the culture and are by in large the biggest pro.

    Cons

    -i joined when the company was much smaller and the feeling of becoming a larger institution is definitely there. that said, in a perfect world this would create more opportunities. catch up here is clearly in order.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep your ear to the ground. focus on career advancement and creating opportunities. stay transparent with information. invest more into products and get ahead of the competition.
