    Pros

    Lots of professional development, opportunities to learn, great folks, several locations, open door policy, supportive environment. Paid time off to volunteer, nice benefits, summer hours, rewards and recognition throughout the year. Lots of creative types, relaxed atmosphere but strong teamwork-oriented.

    Cons

    Growing pains within the company as we work toward implementing standard procedures and best practices. Some culture clash around the same issues, but great opportunities for those that can find a balance between the two and see the way forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Inter-department relationship-building should be addressed and emphasized from the top down.

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible. Employees can trash on the company and CEO during the so called "Town Hall Meeting" - however the CEO trashes right back. Others say the CEO has to be realistic.
    Trying to think of the pros....Many, but not all of the people are the BEST people you wish to meet. One of the best Human Resources Department you can meet throughout your employment. Great Keurig coffee.

    Cons

    Some departments very snobby. If you are business cordial to everyone you are looked down upon since you are speaking to those others dislike. If you are not liked well in the beginning its hard to change the attitude. Fortunately i did not receive this treatment but saw many who did. Too much management turnover. Unrealistic timetables as as others said in their reviews here. Poor raises for those that deserve it. Some departments get the standard raise for all, no matter what the employee effort is or goals accomplished. The back pay for raises prompt. Some departments have the review months LATE. . If you are in the office realize that things can change with what seems like no planning. .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adive to ALL first. DOCUMENT everything. SAVE your emails. Stop acting like grade school. Treat employees with respect. Don't walk by them when they say hello to you. Quit putting 100 percent of the blame on the economy.

    Realize that employees know MORE than you think.
