    Pros

    Office culture is great. They really care about their employees and treat them to monthly happy hours, weekly birthday lunches, and other amazing bonding activities. Everyone gets along well and communicates well with their peers. There is a great work life balance and people are compensated well.

    Cons

    The only con I had was that there wasn't a position for me to move up into, but there is room to grow in your position and take on more work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think Management is doing a great time. They really care about their employees and it shows in the work they are producing.
