    I have been working at Yapstone full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast pace, friendly. Executives are not perfect but not complacent-constantly striving to be better, in the industry and for employees.
    401k matching, monthly activities to give back to the community, paid annual volunteer day, flexible time off.
    If you are ok with a start-up environment - I am - it is energizing and challenging. Never bored. Like being able to make a difference in processes and practice. (growth is so fast it still feels like a start up)
    Exceptional peers. Love my job and co-workers.

    Cons

    Depending on your department, your managers/supervisors can be ok or great.
    Can be long hours at times if there is something big going on, if that's a "con."

    Advice to Management

    Set realistic goals for the company.
