    Pros

    Great CEO

    Lacks processes of larger companies so you need to accept that you have to make some decisions yourself

    Recruit enough people (and the right people) to execute on the bold plans that we have

    Pros

    Great leadership, focused on people and growth. Global footprint, but still has a small company feel, built on relationships and focused on our customers. Great people, hard workers.

    Cons

    Most people wear many hats. You have to be willing to help out and reach out across functions, segments and geographies. As a company, we tend to take on too many things at once.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the game changers and resource them appropriately.
