    Pros

    Challenging and competitive. Always trying to do more with less. If you work hard and innovate you will move up.

    Cons

    Management turnover. You work hard and endless hours to achieve advancement opportunities then your manager or VP leaves and you have to start over with new management.

    Advice to Management

    Give raises to your better employees. Even in an economic downturn it is still cheaper to pay your best employees rather then let them migrate to the competition.

    The recruiter was the best I have ever worked with. Great at communicating and assisting in making the process as painless as possible.
