    Pros

    Laid back, can be fun and is very flexible.

    Cons

    The overall management is horrible. Run by leaders who don't listen to their employees. Some managers even throw their employees under the bus for the sake of customer satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of one person making every decision, there should be a board of leaders who weigh in on important decisions. How can a company win when it's not right within.
