    Pros

    It's a small company, so you can get to know many of the decision-makers personally and get your ideas implemented. Benefits have improved over the past year, particularly vacation time. Working hours are longer than 9--5 or even 9--6, but still pretty reasonable, and I've seen people exercise a lot of flexibility.

    Cons

    Procedures are not very well established. Some departments are stuck in a mindset of chasing customers instead of building a solid foundation for the future. These departments also have high turnover. To avoid this as a job candidate, just ask your interviewer how many people have left the group in the past year.

    Pros

    Company is an innovator in its market space and has an excellent customer base.

    Cons

    If you have a family or social life, be prepared. There is no flexibility and fixed/long hours. Also, the culture is extremely hierarchical for such a small company. Turn over is very high.

    Advice to Management

    Be more interested in the well being of employees.
