    Pros

    Great team, great products and great ideas for growth. There are some dynamic people in the workforce, and the offices are very welcoming with great color scheme.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, bad termination practices, does not honor employees as they should. There is a negative air and much discussion of dramatic situations that the company, unfortunately, has put themselves in by making poor business decisions that are clearly seen by all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to catch employees doing something right, and provide better training. Think about the consequences of critical business decisions, and honor your people. Being more 'solutions based' will do wonders, and empower your workforce.
