      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Amazing culture and work life balance.

      Cons

      8 layoffs in 5 years. Constantly shuffling teams as a result of layoffs. Most senior Staff (10+ years) have been cut, leaving a team that frequently does not know how to do their jobs well, let alone when they are doing the work of two people. Constantly shifting corporate goals make it impossible to actually achieve any of them.
