ProsOpportunity for career growth and progressive change. If you are willing to invest time into learning you will be rewarded.

ConsThis may also be a Pro, but, if you are lazy, this isn't a good environment for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep efficiency a priority. Evaluate employee compensation frequently;, reducing compensation for under achievers is sometimes better than increasing compensation of over achievers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
