    Pros

    Relaxed, open and fair. My colleagues were the best part of working at the company. There was some cutting edge tech but alas I didn't get the chance to work on it.

    Cons

    Working with head office in FL meant that there was lots of bureaucracy involved in some very trivial decisions. Often the best approach to solving the problem was vetoed by dictatorial management. Pay wan't awesome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mark T is an ace dude. Some of his lieutenants are just talk loads of bull with no idea of how to run a tech company. When Mark T retires this company needs a similar visionary to take over, otherwise it will be in trouble
