Pros

Great team, great manager and great benefits. Lots of work that challenges an employee. You need to ask for it though.

Cons

Some very poor upper management and executives. Poor performers are kept on forever. Promotions are unfairly given or not standard across the company.

Advice to Management

Some of the problems start all the way at the top. You need to focus at the main source and not at the bottom rung.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. smart people. great benefits, they are a social bunch if that works for you. Casual work environment. Great Transparentness and established process. Great mix of old people and new people keeps it interesting. Great Office Space. Respect people, Clem is engaged and they do there best to bring people along and avoid layoffs. Open environment improves communication. Exciting industry (travel) discounts on travel products.

    Cons

    Small companies offer less career growth opportunities. Pay is a bit below market. Some folks might find that dull. Process can be a bit dated, like remote working policy. It's a bit like a step back in time. Like small towns, it can feel politically a little to close at times. Open Environment can have a negative impact on productivity. Yet people are very complacent so that is great if you want a peaceful environment where nobody argues or even debates and it's oddly quiet perhaps due to the open environment I think for new people it leans towards creepy.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening, not just to managers but lower employees. Keep up the great work and stay engaged. Perhaps if possible you could sit down with employees, all of them, on a yearly basis. Would do wonders for moral and input from outside the senior management chain.
