    Pros

    A great time all the way through due to the caringness of each individual involved (at least the experience I endured)

    Not that much to put in this column here... Maybe some of the projects seem too stressful on the animals.

    Pros

    Fantastic, talented people, there when you need them, unless they're in a meeting

    mid-level management overworked, doesn't know how to do the people side all that great, there's chaos

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    help structure people to use their time more meaningfully, train your mid-level managers and give assistant to senior level staff the tools (trainings) to improve performance and save time. too much time sitting in meetings.
