    Pros

    Great place to learn and grow. Nice work atmosphere: everybody knows everybody else. Good variety of work. Spectacular benefits.

    Cons

    A little small, so not too many opportunities to specialize. Informal atmosphere means that you have to keep tabs on what's going on by chatting with as many people as possible. Salary is on the low side, but benefits make up for that.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course: keep on giving employees responsibilities, treating people like mature adults and promoting collaboration.
