    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good opportunities for advancement
    Great pay
    Competitive benefits package
    Good company name recognition (could be beneficial if you choose to pursue a position with another company)

    Cons

    Management frequently out of touch with true level of effort required to complete projects.
    Work/life balance "preached" but not "practiced" by a significant number of employees resulting ultimately in young emloyees burning themselves out and seeking lower-stress opportunities elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on employee training as we go through a period of rapid growth. Develop a program (training or an "advertising campaign") to help employees strike a better work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Put some focus on sharing information using SharePoint - this will help with the turnover coming up to speed quicker
