    Pros

    You will get a chance to do everything -- wear all the hats. You get to be closely involved with every aspect of a product company.
    Benefits are decent. Pay is not.
    Small company feel is nice. Central SF location is great if you live in the city.
    Everyone who works at Oliso can learn from it and move on to a better job.

    Cons

    Long hours. Low pay. Management needs improvement. Questionable leadership.
    High turnover. Sometimes low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Allow someone else to manage.
