    Pros

    Great people and great environment that actually has HR for HR! Instead of always giving to others, HR folks actually get something back. Great acknowledgement and recognition. Compensated for great ideas and innovative thinking. Allows freedom within a framework. NO MICROMANAGING! Competitve and collaborative environment. My peers want to experience success together. Best company I ever worked for. Commitment to diversity of thought, gender, race, sexual orientation and experiences.

    Cons

    Ask me on another few years. Right now.....it is an ideal environment for middle management.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being inclusive and innovative.
