    Pros

    Office culture is unique. People for the most part are trying to do what is right for the company. Benefits are ok.

    Cons

    Lack of communication and clear direction from the leadership team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more clear direction from leadership. Seems to have a lack of ownership on projects. Lack of agreement among leadership on what the priorities are for the business.
