    Pros

    Very good coworkers
    Interesting products/processes
    Fair pay and benefits
    Autonomy
    License to use your brain
    Schedule flexibility
    Perpetual new challenges

    Cons

    Vision is expected to be known, rough and unforgiving learning curve
    Lack of confidence, or previous experience leads employees to be "gun shy"
    Paralysis by analysis, then re-analysis, probably some more, finally a forced decision
    Ready, aim, fire is the correct sequence when trying to accomplish an objective
    Systems are cobbled together, beaten into functionality and all Hell breaks loose when reliability isn't as expected.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your trusted advisors, if failure keeps happening, look to new advisors.
    Listen to workers inside and outside the circle for different perspectives, and act on the right one.
    Sr. Management is very intelligent, do not assume all people are able to follow the reasoning and be on the same page at all times without direction.
    Confrontational management styles work effectively on a very small percentage of people. Read some books, there are options.
    Pay attention to turn over, everyone else can't be wrong all the time.
    Focus on the big picture, correct staffing will ensure all of the smaller pictures run in accord without daily redirection.
    It's good to be the boss, but occasionally the staff might be worth listening to.
    All said, I genuinely liked it there and wish the company all the best - good people, good tools, good market. Try having some fun, I sincerely believe the company will be more profitable in that atmosphere.
