    Expand operations in the Western US.

    Pros

    Progressive environment, balances between being cutting-edge and playing smart (not conservative, but not overly agressive in strategy). Atmosphere was congenial, easy to make friends.

    Cons

    Easy to get overworked; workload was not really monitored correctly to ensure even distribution. Too much ebb and flow when it came to projects.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget who makes the engine run; sales and support people deserve the recognition for a job well done, and the corporate support structure is consistently overworked.
