    Pros

    Values the opinions and work of good employees. They give feedback and offer many great benefits. The environmental concern is awesome.

    Cons

    They want results. If you don't deliver, you are not coddled to and rewarded. This is a pro to people that work, a con to the lazy.

    Advice to Management

    Work on IT. All else seems to be working, sales and profits are on the rise so something is right.
