    Pros

    Great people. Casual atmosphere. Lots of technology to play with. Good salaries.

    Cons

    Management does not know how to make the best use of its talented people. Career advancement can be very difficult if you don't know the right people.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employees. Learn what they want to do with their careers and put them where their strengths can be put to best use. It will be a win-win for everybody.

    Pros

    High salaries, cool business, smart people.

    Cons

    There is very little respect for anyone (email is ignored, frequent no-shows to meetings), flexible hours are not really that flexible, the work is boring, continually shifting priorities means projects are never completed, dependency on old processes with little support for change.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build on employee engagement - it's taking way too long to see progress (ie a YEAR). Clearly communicate business priorities and see them through before switching gears. Communicate better - quality not quantity.
