    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to make an impact on the products and the culture. There is some bureaucracy, especially in finance, but much more positive than negative aspects to this company. Recent improvements, like Unlimited PTO are great.

    Cons

    Too many layers of approval for some relatively simple tasks (ie. Purchasing)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pare down the need to have everyone approve everything - act more like a start up than a behemouth.
