    Pros

    Great employee development program. Executive is even more motivating than management. Undergoing great cultural evolution.

    Cons

    Is almost impossible to professionally progress to a department other then the one you started. Specially if you are in sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Right track. Don't let the Daily activities and old ways get in the way of what the organization is trying to improve.

    Pros

    annual raises
    bonus twice a year
    excellent management, very flexible and pushes you to do your best
    friendly work envorinment

    Cons

    No downsides here. Great company overall

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    promote within the company for management positions rather than hiring from outside. A seasoned staff with prior knowledge and experience would be much more efficient and productive compared to a new hire from another agency outside of the company. Also, give compensation and raises more frequently to those who are deerving of it.
