    Pros

    There is a lot of free food. Some of the upper management try to help but they too are spread thin. Some good people in the office that want to make a change..

    Cons

    Expensive benefits, average pay, bonus pool just goes to management, no advancement opportunity, lower levels spread thin and expected to do more and more.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the lower levels that understand the day to day work
