    Pros

    Great people, willing to go the extra mile if needed. Overall atmosphere and expertise is phenomenal. Some of the brightest in the business are at this company.

    Pros

    With new CEO, things are appearing to be moving in the right direction. Not much culture, but that provides a good work-life balance. Office is mostly lax and exec are easy to talk to.

    Cons

    Had a rough past couple of years so a lot of good people left, doesn't appear that those people are being replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Keep salaries competitive to keep the best people around. Things are going pretty well, let's keep moving in this direction.
