    Pros

    - Smart People
    - Not working weekends and crazy hours

    Cons

    - Need to hire more people to take on projects and work that just isn't being done
    - Pay isn't that great, and neither are benefits any more.. Care more about shareholder value now than Employee morale
    - Very flat organization with very, very little room for management experience.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up a bit on the purse strings..
