      Pros

      MFA is extremely mission driven, and if animal welfare is a cause you believe in, then you've found your people! They are also aware that they need to operate like a for-profit from a business perspective, so are progressive in their approach.

      Cons

      Haven't really found any yet. I am sure there are some, as no business is perfect, but as for now just really happy to be somewhere where I feel I'm making the world a better place for animals.

      Advice to Management

      keep doing what you're doing!
