    Pros

    You will not just feel like a number. This is a family run business, and their employees are treated with care.

    The organization is fairly flat, so there can be limited opportunities for growth unless you are willing to wait a while or move.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t lose the culture or the personal touch that the employees value so much. This will be key as the company continues to grow.
