    Pros

    This technology and pace of innovation is so unique here. We solve every problem on our desks and are empowered as engineers. It's not obvious from the outside but this company is poised for explosive growth and profitability. There was a ton of activity in the past 1-2 years with new product introductions and integrating acquisitions, but the leadership team has done a tremendous job. As the dust settles the fruits will become obvious, the adoption and feedback we are seeing is rewarding. Great company to work for, exposed to all disciplines of engineering and problem solving. Strong focus on first principles. Development opportunities everywhere I look.

    Cons

    Small accountable teams can create internal competition, but it's largely healthy and productive.

    My team is amazing. The folks I work with keep the company going. They problem solve, move, fix, and do just about everything a person can do to help all of the engineers, chemists, and technicians get their jobs done. Best team ever.

    Pros

    This company has a phenomenal leadership team, specifically within the sales department. They are mentors, yet hold you accountable to help you grow as a leader yourself

    Cons

    This company is still considered a new company with a lot of growing pains. All the heavy lifting is being done now and at an extremely fast pace.

    Fast moving with lots of opporunity

    Pros

    Still keeps the startup-mentality by moving at a super fast pace, even with being a public company. This provides great opportunity to grow within a role - as there is more responsibility within each department every day.

    Cons

    The growth and pace can mean that some teams get bandwidth constrained fairly quickly. This can mean workloads are more than normal as hiring is catching up.
