    Pros

    - Lots of involvement at any level of employment
    - Great opportunities for growth if one takes initiative
    - Overall good work culture and great people

    Cons

    - Lean organization
    - Not for the employee who needs/enjoys lots of structure; company expects individuals to take initiative and be proactive

    Advice to Management

    Increase and make more efficient the communication between separate departments and continue to reduce cost waste; however; not by cutting jobs.

  2. Great day-to-day work experience at the WHQ
