    Pros

    Challenging work, different project experiences, and opportunities to continue to grow. Really curious how things will work out with the buyout.

    Cons

    Previously we operated like individual franchises, now it will be interesting to see how things go. Hopefully we will not operate in P&L silos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the extra bureaucracy and please no change to open office space! Also, please stop reducing PTO.
