    Pros

    Great, committed people doing good things.

    Cons

    For a small place the communication is sometimes weirdly complicated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A "flat" organizational structure is nice on paper, but in reality human nature creates hierarchies. Pretending otherwise doesn't actually equal equality.
