    Pros

    Open to new ideas, easy access to CEO, easy schedule

    Cons

    Bottleneck at VP level, lower employees treated as expendable.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people in the trenches, they have a better finger on the pulse of what the customer truly wants, and what managers are doing behind senior management backs.

    Pros

    They attempted to teach as much as they wanted to share. The office space is in a nice area.

    Cons

    The executives did not value their employees. They expect you to work very long hours and do not provide appropriate compensation. There were not an opportunities to advance or grow. They wanted experience individuals at a very low compensation.

    Pros

    Excellent growth opportunities, great people to work with. Continuing education is encouraged and provided within the company structure. Lots of encouragement to stretch and develop your talents and abilities. The enthusiasm of upper management is a huge plus to working here.

    Cons

    The company is trying to grow at an agressive rate, and the day to day decisions should reflect that desired growth, but most of the time, decisions are made with the short term in mind, not the long term.
    Massive workload. More interdepartmental communication is needed.

    Advice to Management

    Remember where you once were. Lift those who are under you.

    Pros

    Since the company is small, you definitely get a lot of hands-on experience. You are able to come up with new projects on your own as long as they are viable for the company. I also love how they are open about helping you further your career by asking you what you want to be focusing on and if there are any projects you would like to get involved. I definitely enjoy going to work most days.

    Cons

    Since the company's home office is so small, there are always a million things that you can be doing, but they very much value work-life balance.
