    Pros

    Great Compensation Package Flat Organization - Odds are you have met the CEO. Very Strong Financially They mostly take care of their employees

    Cons

    Still a bit of the Good ol' Boy culture Limited Opportunities for big projects. Mainly, just doing more of the same.

    Advice to Management

    Mostly just keep it up. It's probably time to "grow up" a bit with processes and safety. It will bite you one day.
