    Pros

    Fun, fast paced environment, great teammates.

    Cons

    senior managers: For an innovative company they were pretty old school on managing. really frowned on remote work. Would not give titles/promotions due to being a "flat organization" which was baloney.

    Advice to Management

    Sr Management took the golden parachute so all ends well for them. If they move to other adventures I would suggest to become better with their own teammates, be honest and don't hide behind words like "flat organization"
