    Pros

    Excellent CEO with a clear vision for success; strong compensation packages; great progress toward the culture the company envisions

    Cons

    Be ready to work hard! Have made great strides to provide the opportunity for work/life balance but it's a lean company. IT systems can be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Live the vision of the CEO - be ONE company and demonstrate this by example.

    Good working environment.
    Huge transformation in working culture in the last 3-years.
