Pros

Very informal working environment (e.g. not a dress for success place). Limited politics. Fairly open "open-door" policy. Emphasis is on resolving the issue @ the root cause, not just pointing fingers. Flexible mind-set - limited bureaucracy.

Cons

This is not a $1b+ company with global operations and all of the various issues that one can learn from a $1b+ company. Sometimes best practice processes are not followed.

Advice to Management

Continue to engage employees @ all levels, even if they appear "sefl-sufficient"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Company based on a good social concept. Many employees are smart and capable. You get a lot of small perks like picnics, games, cookies etc.

    Cons

    Top Management except perhaps the CEO and CFO do not seem passionate about the company. They are hands off and clueless about how the company runs. So many sycophants under them have made this company their haven. You need not know what happened to walk away with the biggest prize in All Hands meeting. All management positions are almost always filled from outside. There is no scientific analysis of the effectiveness of the promotions and discounts, there is no cost-benefit analysis of the projects. Everything seems to work well on auto-pilot.

    Advice to Management

    You have stopped thinking creatively. There are too many VPs and Directors. There is not enough to do for them. Go by one-strike rule for the top management. Aggressively review the hiring and retention at the middle management level. One third of your workforce does not contribute anything, do you know that?
