    Pros

    Ability to take dog to work, discounts on pet supplies

    Cons

    Low and terribly uncompetitive pay (and even lower raises), lack of internal advancement paths, the worst medical benefits I ever had, highly unethical upper management and HR departments, witnessed many examples of harassment especially against people of color, witnessed many employees pushed out of organization, almost impossible to ever take time off, almost impossible to maintain work-life balance, upper management constantly arguing and changing, mid-management and employees undertrained through out organization, high turnover through out organization (3 CEOs in my time??), departments very disorganized and wasteful, CEO and CHRO inarguably do not care about the people or the organization, witnessed the CHRO yelling at people during town hall meeting because she was called out on lying to the entire organization about benefit and pay increases over a year back, very outdated technology and processes through out the organization causing waste of millions of dollars that could be better spent improving processes and retaining talent by paying a decent salary, outsourcing and downsizing of departments when it makes no sense and hurts the organization--while simultaneously retaining overpaid and underqualified management and upper management despite ongoing volatile issues, would be surprised if the company lasts another decade.

    Pros

    Continuous opportunity for advancement if you have strong drive. Highly supportive upper management. Willing to negotiate salary with strong performers or exceptional candidates. Lots of freedom as general manager in hiring and the hourly of those individuals. Positive atmosphere, helpful peers. Super progressive policies in every way. Barriers between levels of management are quite transparent.

    Cons

    Labor models of publicly traded companies can feel tight at times, but with some experience underneath you it is not too difficult to navigate without over exerting yourself. Company moves quickly through prerogative, which is a good thing but can feel a but like a hurricane if you don't stay on top of it
