    Pros

    Fantastic people. High team actualization, strong work ethic, and management cared about the lower level employees

    Cons

    There was no work/life balance to speak of. This was a position for college grads, as the time committment was large.

    Advice to Management

    Overall it was a great experience. Continue investing in your employees!

    Opportunities are endless. Sky is the limit. It had a startup kind of environment leading to a seasoned organization - processes were evolving and there is ample opportunity to develop those.

    Pros

    Open, friendly environment filled with a lot of proactive individuals. People work until they get their projects complete but also know how to balance work and add a bit of team building into the mix.

    Cons

    It really depends on your manager. Since it was recently acquired earlier in the year, there has been some communication gaps.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your Directors are checking in with their team once in a while.
