      Lacking Diversity

      Pros

      1) The people that work at ED are awesome in general. 2) They appear to be aware of their shortcomings (diversity in particular) and have begun multiple internal initiatives which I think is a good step forward.

      Cons

      There still doesn't appear to be much opportunity for growth for women in the company. It is also generally lacking diversity in a lot of ways.
