    Performance and Pressure.

    Pros

    You will get the opportunity if you prove your value. And this company provides you the chance to show your real potential. No time consuming bureaucracy. Fast decision making. More about numbers than politics, making high level of fairness. Performance sensitive positions are constantly fired, but that is not uncommon in this business.

    Cons

    Relatively low compensation compared to similar places. Too frequent changes on company policies. Constant pressure. Minimal cooperation. Less learning opportunities (conference, etc).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Persistent pressure changes fun to stress. Over stressed workers cannot make real innovation. Money is only part of compensation. Employee education, providing exciting experience, and top level compensation are proven long term investment.
