    I have been working at Control4 full-time

    Pros

    Excellent benefits including a health plan option with 0 premiums for employees.
    Employee beta and purchase programs give you affordable access to otherwise very expensive A/V and home automation tech.
    Compensation is very competitive for my field.
    Hours are flexible and there is attention to maintaining healthy work/life balance.
    Lots of opportunities for domestic and international travel.
    Everyone I've worked with so far has been very nice and willing to help.
    Lots of additional little perks that make work a nice place to be.
    The work is varied and challenging, and there are always new things to learn and do.
    All things considered, this is the best place I've ever worked.

    Cons

    The company is growing up and out, transitioning from a small private company to a rapidly growing public one. There are the inevitable growing pains that come with this transition.
    Some departments are very set in their ways and resistant to change.
    The company can be weirdly disorganized in ways that can be frustrating to anyone that has experience working in more tightly controlled corporate environments. Finding the right people and resources can be difficult at times.
    The PTO benefits for starting employees is a little low compared to other jobs in my area, but not by much.

    Advice to Management

    Establish guidelines and standards to help rein in departments that are too used to doing their own thing.
