Pros

Most of the company's employees are very positive and happy. Encourage a healthy lifestyle.

Cons

Upward movement is slow. Bonuses are based on a comparison of all peers not just your own accomplishments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Team leaders that are young and immature make working environments somewhat hostile; they always feel they need to "prove" themselves. Find a balance in your leadership for getting work done and maintaining a happy environment for all.

    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits package attracts a competent talent pool. Opportunities to work remotely offer flexibility for work-life balance.

    Cons

    Small pockets of the company drive execution and strategy for multiple divisions, which leads to breakdowns in documenting requirements for projects, establishing appropriate measures of success and mapping realistic project timelines. While the company attracts some of the best and brightest in terms of talent, that same talent pool is prevented from using their skill sets to their greatest advantage when decisions are driven by so few without seeking input from the pool of talent across the organization. Ultimately, this contributes to lower individual job satisfaction and higher than average turnover rates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your talent pool to do their jobs and use the skills you hired them for in the first place.
