    Pros

    Top notch co-workers and products.

    Cons

    During transitions no thought was given to past performance, sadly it all came down to who you knew. The side taking leadership roles acted as conquerors which pushed good employees out.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach.

    Pros

    This company is continually improving and expanding as it works to stay competitive in a growing market. I have had a very positive experience here.

    Cons

    This job can require longer work hours, and that can definitely be a negative for some. Lower paid jobs especially have less flexibility.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach.
