    Great work opportunities across functional groups. Nice work hour flexibility, and even type of work flexibility. Lots of smart, knowledgeable people to work with and learn from if you ask.


    Some areas of the business are under-resourced, and cost-saving initiatives are sometimes too aggressive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People are valuable. Make sure the know and feel this. Allocate time for knowledge sharing and learning across functions.
