    Pros

    Defined mission
    Good people
    Outstanding (full) benefits
    Offers work-life balance
    Strives for creative, ground-breaking work
    Has LEED HQ building
    Clear about profit oriented focus

    Cons

    Roller Coaster. There is an on-going culture of continuous re-organization and therefore uncertainty about job stability regardless of your performance
    Technology disrupters w founding business model: what platform will content be streamed on in 2025?
    Lack of a career advancement plan (promotions seem to go to outside hires)
    Skews to hire young, does not balance "ages" in the workforce
    Doesn't re-hire former employees all too often which is a loss to the company
    Need to know someone inside to get resume lifted up to appropriate hiring manager

    Advice to Management

    Hire and KEEP people instead of continually spewing them out.
