    Pros

    The people here are phenomenal. The work culture is that of a start up/ tech company with their flexible work hours (may depend on group), availability to work from home, happy hours, flexibility to wear casual clothes and lots of autonomy.

    Cons

    Sometimes unorganized and too many reorgs, direction and mission has been lost. They need a stronger executive team that has a clear direction and can lead them in the right path.

    Advice to Management

    Create a stronger executive team with a clear mission that connects for all the different businesses, make it transparent to the whole company and how each person contributes to these goals and win.

  2. Good over-all with the occasional loss of motivation "One step forward, two steps back"

    Pros

    Very smart and experienced people with extensive background and knowledge of the industry. Good work environment, focussing on a good work/life balance. Above average benefits and an overall respected brand.

    Cons

    Management team is too egotistical and doesn't provide clear career coaching for staff or new hires. Personal opinions and beliefs get in the way of good workflow.

    Advice to Management

    focus on coaching staff rather than instilling fear of not hitting the number. Use time at meetings to figure out ways to solve department vs. department meetings. More team building activities to allow for cross-department interaction.
