    Pros

    Unique company being privately owned by one person, Room for growth, good people

    Cons

    Very hard to take vacation time, as you will be swamped before you leave and after you come back; it is a very demanding company to work for if you want to do a good job. Long hours, heavy workload.

    Advice to Management

    Different people/managers/departments have different priorities/mandates, so hard to provide good customer service when not everyone is on the same page and so much time must be devoted to paperwork and reports.
