    Pros

    Career opportunities are good; small start-up gives you more freedom to try ideas and learn new things.
    Communications among the company are easy.
    Recognition & feedback fast from management team.

    Cons

    Should focus on what is most critical in the severe financial crunch. Spend resources wisely and carefully.
    Good start-up, not so good timing.

    Advice to Management

    Do not always lean forward too much.
