    Pros

    There used to be several such as good benefits, growth, career opportunities

    Good work/life balanace, 9/80 schedule, paid parking, average pay, and a lot of really talented employees.

    Cons

    Unfortunately many of the talented employees left to go somewhere else. The CEO is great, but he does not seem to be running the place. So unless you are on the CFO’s favorite list, good luck!He ran off a lot of great upper management.
