    Pros

    They have a great product, a decent culture and a reasonable executive team.

    Cons

    What drove me crazy was that mid-level managers got more recognition for saying "no" than actually helping you drive a project to completion.

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees for assisting others to get things done.
