    I have been working at CENTRA (Massachusetts) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Trust: Basically I'm trusted to do what I need to do onsite to do my job-- very low management interference. This is huge to me.
    - Low bureaucracy: because it's a medium sized company, there are forms and procedures for some things but it's pretty low-key. I really appreciate the low impact on my time.
    - Good work/life balance: I know some people work really hard, but they're mostly driven by their own passion. I've never been asked to sacrifice my personal time or family life.
    - Compensation/Benefits: I really don't have much to compare, but I feel very well compensated. My health insurance is the best I've ever had in my life-- I pay nothing.

    Cons

    - Your experience may differ, depending on location. I have no awareness of any B.S. or petty infighting, but I'm also thousands of miles away from HQ.
    - Hard for me to really know about the management culture, since I'm not involved day to day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the low-BS, low-bureaucracy feel. Stay small and nimble. Focus on being the go-to people for a few select areas, rather than succumbing to the trend to be everything to everyone.
