    Pros

    Still has a small company atmosphere, the majority of the time, you feel like your opinions and ideas are valued.

    Cons

    I can't really think of many cons, no job is perfect though. Sometimes, in my current position, I think the availability of vertical movement is somewhat limited.

    Pros

    The benefits offered are great and affordable.

    Cons

    No one ever seems to get a raise and the vacation time sucks. Management is really out of touch with what goes on in the company. People seem to be a commodity and are frequently treated as such.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what is going on in your comapny and simply make better decisions.
