    Not many opportunities for growth, hard to move once you are in a position.

    Pros

    There is always something new going on. Lots of room to move around and opportunities for advancement. Nice recognition of good work.

    Cons

    Small company (which can also be a plus) means the possibilities are not limitless. If your contract ends, there might not be any place to go within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Retain the values the company had at the outset.
