    Pros

    Great work/life balance and lots of opportunities for employees to get involved in projects as well as volunteer work.

    Cons

    Has cyclical layoffs and employee morale drops for a year. Also, yearly performance reviews where you have no input on how your manager ranks you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of top-down employee performance reviews and start having real discussions with employees.
