    Pros

    Difficult to say right now

    No compassion or understanding of what employees give to the company nor the sacrifices they make. Too much focus on the top line and lose focus on the valuable asset of the employees that delivers it.

    Getting people to work for you is easy - getting them to stay is much, much harder. Remember, most people leave other people - not companies!

    Pros

    Rapidly growing company provides opportunities

    Cons

    With so much M&A, there isn't much thought being put into the product portfolio. People are being overworked to the max and beyond.

    Advice to Management

    Provide enough resources to not burn out employees. People want to work hard but overworking them will backfire in the long run.
