    Pros

    Extremely helpful management team that listens to every individual and provides the right opportunity to work. You are not pushed to an opportunity while on bench, you are given choices of opportunities to learn and work on modern technologies. Recently spending time on the bench is helping us with lots of shadow opportunities.

    Employer takes care and shares lot of information, I cant remember one single employer in the valley who has provided its employees with a cashless stock buy back option. An extremely focused and caring founder has lead the company to reach new heights.

    We get an opportunity to meet top level management member every week who shares about company updates during our weekly bench meetings.

    Overall great place to work with positive momentum.

    Cons

    Some times intentional ignorance to the well known facts by management.
    Employee concerns around parity issue and retention is growing and it requires immediate attention.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good momentum.
    Spend funding wisely across the functions to reach company goals.
    Retention activities and compensation variance needs a serious review.
