    Pros

    great people to work with; amenities and benefits not typically found in older companies (tuition reimbursement; flex time off; good work-life balance); HQ perks are great; love that there is on-site child center; involved in the community; interesting products; career growth; you feel like you have a voice and are heard

    Cons

    sometimes we're not very good risk-takers which can hurt us; a lot of tenured employees (which can also be a Pro) that can be resistant to change; stale ideas in some departments; departmental silo effect syndrome

    Advice to Management

    keep an open mind; keep thinking outside the box and allowing employees to think outside the box; tear down the communication barriers
