    I have been working at Code42 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Small, agile work environment is really amazing, and a great change from the large company culture I'm accustomed to. - Management is very transparent. - The work I'm doing makes me feel like I am truly contributing to the company's success. - My successes, as well as my failures, are very visible with a company like Code42, which in a strange way, is very exciting for me personally because of the amount of possibility...

    Cons

    - Onboarding is a little strange, and not really developed, but this really is only at the beginning. Once I started contributing to my team's success, those issues were ironed out fairly quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue being transparent, and continue making difficult, educated decisions to help the company grow to its potential.
