Pros

The work they did was of a huge value to society and our community.

Cons

Most managers seem to be supporting their bosses, and not their reports.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to those with high work ethic; stop criticizing people who are perceived as "working too hard". Most likely they are making up for the workers who are not.

    Pros

    Revolutionary Technology. Company investing in people and various community projects is commendable considering small size. HR often has free wellness projects and themes (fresh fruit, no vending machines, wellness fair, walking group, fitness classes and healthy challenges). Appreciate ownership of tasks and wonderful work ethics of people.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is delay in approvals or finishing projects due to small size of departments and multiple roles and responsibilities of senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to exercise full potential of the product; build a robust pipeline to attract strong partnerships.
