    Pros

    Work with a proud team of industry leading experts. The passion of being the best is clearly evident in many teams day to day operations from marketing to engineering. Benefits are good but changes are underway so carefully assess market benchmarks before making any decision. The core business is strong and resilient.

    Cons

    Strategic growth needs clarity from management to align roles and responsibilities for all team members.

    Pros

    Great benefits including health club, employee stock program, bonus, stock grants. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Risk averse culture. Culture is not very collaborative. Things move a bit slowly.

    Advice to Management

    Top management needs to get more aggressive to find new areas for growth and get on the same page. Hold people accountable for deliverable and schedules. Get rid of people in leadership positions that are not team players across organizations. They set a bad example.
