    Pros

    - great pay and benefits - exciting vision for the future of technology - rewarded for contribution as well as potential for contribution - good training offerings for SAP certifications as well as education allowance - laid back culture of autonomy and self scheduling -- just get things done and add value

    Cons

    - work-life balance can be tough, especially in global roles where you have interact with time zones - even though company is growing, it is still cutting back in certain areas -- if you don't get cut, you typically have to pick up the slack which can feel unmanageable at times

    Advice to Management

    - when executing a reduction in force, clearly communicate the expectations of those left standing as to how to manage existing workloads and make sure those are realistic -- especially considering morale is already down with friends being forced to leave
