    Pros

    Perks, benefits and employee recongition activities seem to increase every year.
    Company has been paying regular and increasing bonuses, stock plans have been delivering great returns!
    Company weathered the recession well, and continues to focus on internal growth, acquisitions, and investing in high caliber talent (both internal and new hire).
    Fun place to work where you are not micro managed.

    Cons

    No 401(k) match.
    Not strong culture of telecommuting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to remain as transparent as possible about company progress and future strategy.
