    Pros

    Innovation is in our DNA, you never get bored and there is always something new. Very diverse with people full of energy, different backgrounds, willing to help to change the world and committed with good causes

    Cons

    Balance of new hires and people with some time in the company

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees motivated so they show passion every day they show to work. It is better over communicate than keep information that is needed and Lead always by example not talking but doing.
