    Pros

    Great People, Open door policy .
    Opportunities to learn everyday, and great to have flight benefits

    Cons

    Micromanaging from Managers that don't have the expertise or Educational level.
    To agree on Scope can be difficult as the company is growing and no everyone has the same level of expertise/maturity. Fast paced with no consideration of quality of work.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the smart people they hired, that is the reason you hired talented people with experience. Not to micromanage.
