    Pros

    The people that work here really care about the work they do. They want to produce quality work. Lots of opportunity to move laterally. Lots of travel opportunities within the company if you want to move.

    Cons

    The benefits have been cut way back because the company is suffering quite a bit at the moment. Not a lot of opportunity to move up in this small office. They seems to take all their management from the project manager group.

    Advice to Management

    Middle management is doing a good job. Upper management seems so disconnected from the way our small office operates.
