Pros

Great brand, great marketing, useful product, great people, great location (Harrisonburg), smart developers, relaxed environment, free beverages, always improving, free access to all products

Cons

There is little innovation due to the top-down management approach. Things move very slowly, and the organizational culture does not facilitate inter-department communication well.

Advice to Management

Hire smart people, then trust them. They won't get it right 100% of the time, but then again, neither will you.
