Pros

Need to be OK with change as the company is working through an evolution from product to solution specific. Very passionate team.

    Pros

    Fast paced always growing environment which keeps things fresh and motivating. We help people with their higher education opportunities which is rewarding as well.

    Cons

    Politics reign over actual performance in many ways. Communication is also an issue between various lines of business.

    Advice to Management

    Write some SOPs for communication, base performance off of acutal performance and not off of who you like the best or who you think is the best looking!
