    Pros

    Great place to work, where the culture is open, friendly, and ready to work hard to get the job done. Nice that it has a casual dress code and many open discussions.

    Cons

    There aren't a lot of women in high up leadership positions, especially on the sales side. Can feel like the good ol boys club sometimes, when almost all of the upper management are men driving their fancy cars and owning multiple homes, but I guess that's corporate America for you!

    Advice to Management

    Would love to see my charitable activities going on. Instead of just writing a big check every year, bringing the employees together to run charity races, or work on Habitat for Humanity is a much better way to give back and boost employee morale at the same time.

    Pros

    You get to work with awesome people (for the most part), and you get to do work that's interesting. A lot of respect for intelligent people, and you're encouraged to work on your own project ideas.

    Cons

    Can be mentally exhausting. Hard to not work 70 hour weeks. Always pressure to be bigger, better, more, greater. No work-life balance allowed.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to offer work-life balance. Quit hiring idiots, or at least don't let those idiots hire even more idiots.
