    I love the opportunity to work for a company that is actually doing something positive and humane.

    Cons

    The CEO is on the way out and there is a restructuring which has led to people losing their jobs and a general sense of unease that more people are going to go.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and please don't look at sites like this to determine what your path forward should be. Seriously, use data or something like that, not some social networking site. Really, if you are reading this then shame on you!!!!
