    Pros

    the people are great to work with (mid management and below). overall a good place to work.

    Cons

    for people on office hours there is not enough offered for work/life balancing. there used to be a 9-80 schedule worked, but it was stopped.

    Advice to Management

    try to genuinely listen to the people--don't just go through the motions by taking surveys and doing nothing. really listen to what is going on day to day and react.
