    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for growth great foundation

    Cons

    Lower than average pay, too many average or below average workers allowed to collect a paycheck. It is difficult to manage out underperformers.

    Advice to Management

    Reward loyaly. Your long term staff is penalized through lower pay, you do not reward commitment and hard work. People with proven track records of success are making 25-30% less than unknown new hires.
