    Pros

    Great culture, Care for Employees, Great management that keeps the company growing, equal opportunity employer

    Cons

    Sometimes it seems everyone's opinions and suggestions are not valued. Some of the higher management seem to get their way even if its not profitable to the company which also affects the employees morale watching it. Could get better with openness.
