Pros

Work environment composes of a friendly, knowledgeable, and cooperative staff with various backgrounds. Most employees haven't been with the company longer than 3 years. Great pay and benefits. Great culture that recognizes not only performance, but character. Senior management is very communicative, upbuilding, and pro-active. The CEO gets to know YOU. Good communication from your supervisor regarding what will effectively get you promoted.

Cons

Technical sharing primarily in silos, but that may be addressed shortly. No real data management focus, ut that is changing. Somewhat chaotic professional development planning. Fast growth has strained some cross functional relationships and business processes.

Advice to Management

None, really.

    It might be a good idea to divest of or JV/partner on some assets to accelarate the development of a few key projects.
