Pros

- Diversity at forefront of values
- Career advancement opportunities and transparency abound
- Work is recognized and rewarded
- Management style is mainly laid-back: we work hard, we play hard

Cons

- Retention of those who shouldn't be: GMI loves its employees and it hates letting anyone go. Great for job security, but it means you will certainly work with someone who shouldn't be there.

Advice to Management

- Keep doing what you're doing on staying transparent and rewarding a good job when it's due
- Be more critical about who you're keeping around: some people can be too difficult to work with effectively, dampening our shared goal of driving results
