    Pros

    Small enough company that you can understand all facets of the business - but large enough and growing fast enough to provide great opportunities to contribute to the success.
    Fantastic teamwork and many outstanding individuals make for a lively environment. Very interesting customers and a focus on continuing improvement round out the positives.

    Cons

    Managing for new and growing customer demands means a quick pace of change in the organization and ongoing training & communication requirements that can present challenges in terms of everyone keeping up and being in synch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication
