    I have been working at U.S. Venture full-time

    Pros

    Exhilarating pace, growing company, cares about its employees and the community, very philanthropic, fun, smart people who work hard

    Cons

    I thought the pace at my previous company was fast but this is crazy fast. I'll take it. Better to be working with a growing company than one in a downward spiral. That latter is no fun. Been there. Done that.

    Advice to Management

    Share your vision and repeat it often. We are all in the race together. When the horn sounds, we all need to be running in the same direction if we are to win. Let's win together.
