    Pros

    Very casual environment. Frequently get to work on new projects and new challenges, and company is involved in some innovative work in the field of Intellectual Property law. Very strong legal intel (the organization's most valued attribute). Very stable company, especially compared to the music industry overall, with some big clients. Small enough company that senior management is accessible. Not too much red tape when you need to get something done. Certainly room for growth for those with interest in the subject matter and the right skill sets (or willingness to train and acquire the right skill sets).

    Cons

    Environment can be too casual, with conflicts between employees who are more proactive and other employees who work at their own pace and few means of objective resolution. Wide variety of skill level amongst workers creates a strong 20/80 work ratio. And few standardized methods of performance evaluation can create compensation disparities (rare, but can happen). Also few standardized formats for information exchange/reporting can cause miss-communications and redundancy. The occasional growing pain can also derail otherwise on track projects (but better to have growing pains then downsizing).

    Advice to Management

    Some business leaders do have an open door and open ear policy. But few are ready to actually act on new ideas suggested by the organization's "followers" beyond lip service. This creates a stagnant layer of bubbling ideas which are discussed briefly but never acted on (and so add no business values) but serve as constant distraction from the current processes in place.
