    Pros

    Due to the small size of the firm, staff have opportunities to work on a great variety of projects.

    Cons

    The work environment can be concluded with two words -- "drama factory".

    Advice to Management

    Office politics is unfortunately important, but it shouldn't be all there is. If someone who is smart and has good skills, learn from them, don't just try to get rid of them in order to secure your own position.
