    With such fast growth teams can get out of touch with each other and priorities can shift so work you've spend a lot of time and energy on can quickly go by the wayside.

    Pros

    Great company with great working environment. Smart people, great product, solid leadership. Supports time off for community service. Lots of room for growth. V2MOM process brings good alignment across company.

    Cons

    Lack of process, planning is poor in some areas. Some people in management believe that we are still a startup, which can be limiting. Staffing is lean and staff are very, very busy!

    Keep leading the way!
