    Fun, fast-paced environment where every employee has the chance to make a difference.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Memphis, TN

    ProsLeadership has a great vision. Change is difficult, but the leadership is behind the change and works with employees to lessen the burden of change. Compensation is good for talented employees, and this company seeks nothing but talented employees. The atmosphere is very friendly, and the place feels like being with family.

    ConsSome pockets of leadership not on board with change and are not handled appropriately. Some lack of accountability creates friction at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership too focused on operational excellence. More attention to R&D and marketing will be needed to overcome upcoming business challenges.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
