Pros

Relatively flat hierarchy, good leadership, cutting edge innovation, talented co-workers. I have never worked for a company that encourages this much innovation and teamwork. I love coming to work everyday.

Cons

Work life balance is bad. If you are not careful, your work hours can easily extend to 50/60 hours a week. The company has been in a constant state of change for the past three years, which makes it difficult to feel that your job is secure.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    --Salary
    --Benefits
    --Friendships
    --A really terrific severance package if you're able to tough it out
    --The reign of terror once over IT Infrastructure has been moved back to Commercial
    --The incompetent 'senior leader' and over opinionated 'soccer mom' both quit shortly after getting new leadership

    Cons

    --Reviews based upon how much your manager likes you, not what you are able to deliver
    --Hiring based upon enthics/gender and not qualifications
    --Interchangeable staff--'move every 3 years'
    --No true work-life balance or fit
    --Extreme dating scene! So many married, dating, or divorced couples
    --Very short term focused. Does not look at the long term impact

    Advice to Management

    Get real feedback, from your employees and your customers, not customed and tailored such that you only hear what you want to hear.
