    Pros

    The people I work with here are really great, the team environment is flexible and we have flexible working hours.

    It is really bureaucratic at times at this company and it is a corporation that has it fair share of baggage.

    Advice to Management

    Decide more quickly as far as what needs to be done. They do communicate the vision of the company, however.
