    Ability to work in/ with multiple areas. Have had a lot of growth ability. Prior management team very big on high potential employee development.

    Although you're learning your new roles, try to remember that our issues/concerns should not be pushed to the bottom of the "Priority" list.

    Interesing place to work. Keep state of the art.

    Cons

    Company focsed on results for company, less on employees.

    Get more realistic as how long it takes to get things done. Don't just expect employee to make up unrealistic schedule by working personal unpaid overtime. Anticipate that there will be hick-ups and plan accordingly in schedule. No program goes off without a hitch.
