    It was a good place to work until the company got taken over. New Management did not honor the previous traditions.

    Management was not able to find the fine balance between the old culture vs the new culture.

    Pros

    Good atmosphere with some really good people to work with. Good benefits provided when you start. Overall nice office environment.

    Cons

    The people who were there with seniority seemed to be clique-ish. It seemed like there was no room for professional growth. For a small company it seemed big, not a lot of interaction between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Work on team building and get senior management more involved with all employees. This place could have been awesome if the atmosphere was better.

    Develop a stronger career management program, and shift a larger portion of the variable compensation to base base.
