    Pros

    Casual dress code. Lax atmosphere. Friendly coworkers. Interesting philosophy. Flexible hours. No micromanagement. You can get any license you want provided you study.

    Cons

    No raise ever. Ever. Very little upward mobility. Politics are ridiculous. Rewarded based upon how friendly you are with upper management- not Merritt. The lax atmosphere, dress, and hours creates this black hole of complacency. People stay in this job rut for years for lack of options or will to make a change. Horrible culture.

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees. Give them a career path... Many in this company feel like they have a dead end job. Change in philosophy is also in order.
