    Pros

    They will give the opportunity to learn multiple skills if you are willing to take the responsibility.

    Cons

    company is family owned and does not allow for growth best on merit. Very unfair rating system, and management seems to be sexist against women.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to manage the firm better. You will keep loosing great employees due to your unfair judgement, and preference on unfair family based decisions instead of the common good.
