    Pros

    Great people overall. There was a great work/life balance for employees for the most part.

    Cons

    If you have an issue with a manager, and go to their manager or HR, they may collude to get you out, rather than help with the problem. Some of the management seemed to let the newly attained power go to their heads.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful or many of the best employees might get pushed out due to these petty ego issues.
