Cons

Sometimes it can be hard to get big things done, but hey, that’s true everywhere (for different reasons) and if it was easy, we wouldn’t need so many smart team members :)

Advice to Management

Keep it up. Stay focused on a combination of the practical and the big picture - there is plenty of overlap.

    The interview process was smooth, they were very kind and understanding when my laptop ran into technical issues. It was about an hour long, but wasn't completely nerve wracking through out.
