    Cons

    - They’ve got the big talk... But can’t walk the walk.
    - Be careful, the company has grown so much lately, your experience will be very different depend on which office you belong to! Some office environment is just toxic & make you hate your life!
    - you feel like you are just a number- very standard for company of this size
    - no title leads to no structure nor no process

    Advice to Management

    You’ve got some of top talents in this industry because of this unique culture. Learn how to respect & guide the talents rather than just throw them to the jobs and expect them know how to run automatically. And maintain your culture no matter how fast you grow!!!
