    - Decent work life balance
    - Decent pay (if you fight for it)
    - Cool people to work with

    Cons

    - Very corporate culture (used to be very different)
    - Executives care way more about cutting cost than anything else
    - Diminishing benefits
    - No employees can work remotely going forward
    - Executives do not listen to feedback surrounding moral and culture issues

    Advice to Management

    - Listen to your employees and make changes to improve moral and culture. Remember that good employees are what keep this company running and the $ flowing.
    - Allow remote workers again, we are a tech. company and it's 2018
    - Don't take a benefit away and then say that "we were being to generous". Yeah,
     that actually happened recently.
