    Pros

    Great innovation, products you can really stand behind and want to use yourself, setting new standards for the industry.

    Cons

    Company still loses money quarterly so they are extremely cautious how the money is spent. Little investment in new opportunities and their personnel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look more for your own people, they are the ones going the extra mile for this company
