    Pros

    Great working environment, culture. Lots of opportunity to learn and grow. Just a fun place to be!

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity to move up in roles.

    Advice to Management

    Think if we could add layers to different roles, Senior, Junior Manager, etc. it would give more opportunities to keep people in their current departments to grow vs hoping around to find better opportunities in other department with in the organization.
