    Pros

    Flexible work environment. Fair management (i.e., not micromanaged). Decent benefits. Time off is generous. Most colleagues are willing to collaborate in a way that allows one to thrive and grow.

    Pay could be better aligned with the industry. Some "old school" mentality where workers feel threatened by active and hungry talent. More mentoring of younger associates needed.
