    Pros

    Flexible work hours, creative co-workers, positive attitudes, and the knowledge that you're creating a product that has real value.

    Cons

    Some political aspects to advancement (it's occasionally who you know and how friendly you are with those folks that determines your success vs. quality of work). Most of the company directors hold their positions simply due to time in service vs. actual management/leadership skills or talent.

    Pros

    Work at home. The company and administration truly respects your personal time and family life. Everyone is positive and supportive and even though it is a HUGE company, the teams are small enough that you still have a family-type feeling.

    Cons

    None really, but there are a lot of changes so if you don't like that it might be something to consider.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep respecting and valuing your employees. It shows and we appreciate it!
