    Pros

    Good work/life balance, fair pay.

    Lacks ability to grow the business so layoffs continue to be the primary driver to meet revenue targets. Many talented people have been let go yet the same leadership remains. Interesting.

    Get rid of the bureaucracy of day to day work. Evaluate how many leaders it really takes to run the business.
