    Pros

    - Good work-life balance
    - Good benefits
    - Visionary CEO (... but is losing charm slowly).

    Cons

    - Company is not growing as such. Growth in earning is purely by acquiring new companies.
    - No company growth => No career growth.
    - Too much people stuck at mid-level so not much room for growth.
    - Poor mid-level management.
    - 401(k) matching is $1500/year.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your mid-level management, they will ruin a great company.
