    Pros

    Reasonable pay, smaller office allows for more visibility with senior level managment

    Cons

    Very few opportunities for career advancement, someone has to leave a role to allow for upward movement
    Not very challenging or engaging opportunities, very much the same thing day in day out

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, ability to work from home, does alot for the community

    Cons

    expects more work from less headcount, not truthful with employees, does not treat everyone with the same fairness

    Advice to Management

    upper management needs to evaluate lower management better. When there is excessive turn over in a department, it's time to look at how that department is managed.

    Pros

    Pays well, with ample benefits. Culture is pleasant, very little yelling, facilities improving and wonderful, but small community.

    Cons

    Very much works in silos. Has a very hard time embracing cross functional work and leaders are constantly defending their turf. Do not look for your leader to help you develop in your career.

    Advice to Management

    The talent growth and career pathing is a mystery to the rank and file. The politics and continual alignment of people to make decisions is stifling. Many creative people leave the organization due to these issues.
