    Pros

    The company treats their employees and contractors very well. Culture is rich with its intent on continuing its expansion on globalization.

    Cons

    Not necessarily a bad thing, but very result oriented. Due to the fact that the company is changing, those who cannot deliver what is expected might experience difficulty.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you are doing for now.
