    Very hands off environment. Full autonomy over your job. Lots of control over your schedule and flexible remote-work options. Fun, smart people. Convivial work environment.

    Cons

    Same as pros if you are inexperienced or like a lot of guidance. After that the usual. Lack of process can be confusing and frustrating.

    Pros

    Nice offices, cafeteria, park across the street

    Stop hiring managers who do the big talk. Hire quality instead.

    Pros

    There's always something interesting to work on, never a dull moment.

    There's a lot of change, but not much changes. Light on planning and process, except where it's too heavy to move. Nimble in all the wrong places. Very variable leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in lightweight business process consulting; not a Deloitte but someone who can really get in and investigate.
