    Pros

    good work/life balance and solid company culture. Decent opportunity to move around given the size

    Cons

    management and development opportunities were fairly minimal. Hard to learn about other parts of the company, too siloed.

    Advice to Management

    need to empower workers more and trust them to find solutions. Their is more then one way to solve problems, not just how it was done in the past.
