    Pros

    Your coworkers are going to be some of the brightest and most dedicated people you'll work with.
    Amazing office location.
    Lunch provided every day.
    Salary well above average.

    Cons

    Priorities change on a daily basis - when everything isn't top priority.
    Management by threat and intimidation in the absence of clear goals and milestones.
    Two weeks vacation. Really?
    No telecommuting.
    Open plan, noisy office.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch your CTO. He's going to destroy the company, if he hasn't dealt it a death blow already.

    Fun people to work with, weekly company meetings so everyone knows the direction of the company.

    Inefficient on some levels, learning how to work under a parent company, experiencing some growing pains

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to all departments to find out what is working and what isn't and act on it.
