    Pros

    Great Benefits, Flexible wfh

    Cons

    Management is greatly lacking leadership and people skills. Advisors side of company is very political and turnover is crazy. Also, since Ajay became CEO many jobs have gone overseas.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and promote people with leadership skills, build people management skills. Great employees leave when poor leaders are in place.
