    Pros

    great people, great teams, good environment. awesome place to get your career started and gain experience in the industry but long term, 5+ years, you should plan for other places.

    Cons

    very high traffic area, you need to get there 30 min before or else the entire area turns in to a parkinglot with all the other 30 companys in the area letting their 9-5'ers go. due to the low turn over rate in management, promotions are very seldom.

    Advice to Management

    make changes that will have greater impact internally to make employees feel recognized rather than just a few good words about their hard work.
