    Pros

    Nice office environment and good facilities, ambitious to expand, free lunch.

    Cons

    Quality of work deteriorating, high employee turnover, low morale amongst employees, salary is below market, yet to see how the merger will benefit

    Advice to Management

    Value associates more, provide more support for development and maybe fewer people will leave
