    Evolving business model, solid foundation

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsWork-life balance is decent. Growing so likely some opportunity in niches if you can find it.

    ConsStill trying to figure out direction, which leads to some discontinuity.
    Trying to change culture there as many of the employees are lifers that are stuck doing business a certain way as opposed to determining best course for future of company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow employees to take some risks to grow the company. Otherwise, it guarantees mediocrity and inhibits growth.
