    There are constant changes in policies and procedures.

    Keep doing what you are doing. For the first time in my career I have found a company who values me as well as challenges me. I have found my home away from home.

    Pros

    Free food/coffee. Executives seem to care quite a bit about company culture and plan events. Good benefits/PTO policy

    Cons

    In accounting, you can't take part in most corporate events because you live for month end. Forget about taking vacation days during active close. Don't expect to be able to take more than one week vacation at a time even if they can ever keep fully staffed. Turnover has been a nightmare and the accounting software is a steep learning curve if you have not used it before. There seems to be very little internal mobility to managerial positions.

    Advice to Management

    Get staffed and stay that way.
