    Pros

    Good Benefits - Health, Dental, Vision, Tuition Reimbursement ($10k/yr) Focused on promoting diversity - Formerly very white male heavy - has made an effort to promote women and minorities over white males Fun atmosphere - parties, events, teams Relatively down to earth upper management Higher than standard bonus potential (comes with lower salary)

    Cons

    Currently in a poor financial state Staying late = working hard - People who spend the day being unproductive or come in later only to stay past 6 seem to be more valued than people who come in, get there work done, and leave at 5. Your boss makes your experience - very little feedback is sought after from upper management on their middle manager's performance when it comes to how their employees feel the manager is doing. Very rigid salary structure - easy too grow too quickly for the salary to keep up with your skill set for emerging professionals Overly political - you will be valued much more for spending with a C-level officer as opposed to spending time with your team or teammates Made DMN "Great Places to Work" List, but CEO gave a pep talk basically asking people to go "win" the survey as opposed to requesting true and honest feedback.

    Advice to Management

    Institute an anonymous feedback mechanism on specific managers separate from what comes in on the company-wide survey. Focus on manager's ability to maintain a positive culture on their team as well as maintaining performance metrics
