    Keep it up! You challenged me, taught me, built me, and set the bar for how every company should operate

    Pros

    - If you have a global role it is really easy to utilize a flexible schedule to balance work/life.
    - Depending on your role and location, there are Summer hours (half day on Friday between Memorial Day and Labor Day).
    - Holidays given include the days between Christmas and New Year, which is great for traveling home to family.
    - Location. I wasn't thrilled about moving to Racine, WI, but there is more to offer than dreary/cold weather; beautiful fall colors, close to Lake Michigan, close to Milwaukee and Chicago, and sales tax is much lower than where I'm from (which was great when purchasing a car!)
    - They have support groups for diversity (Women, Hispanic, African American, Disabilities, LBGTQ, etc).
    - There are perks to being in Racine: company store, rec facility, park, child care center.

    Cons

    Global roles can lead to very odd hours worked. I personally have not felt pressured to work those crazy hours in addition to the normal "9-5", but I can see how some may feel obligated.

    Child care facility is expensive. It's a great perk that it is close to work, but I think it's a bit above market value for Racine. It's probably cost effective if you are a Chicago or Milwaukee resident.

    Coming from a publicly traded company, I was optimistic about going to a privately owned company; but I see many of the things that drove me nuts about the publicly owned company going on here. For example: travel restrictions at quarter or year end to hit financial targets, making short term cost cutting decisions instead of looking at investing in long term infrastructure.

    Advice to Management

    Think more about what makes sense long-term, not just short term perceived cost savings.
