    + PRO
    I have worked in various capacities at 14 West and The Agora Companies over the past 11 years and through hard work and dedication I have been able to build a successful career for myself To a great degree 14 West embodies the famous Steve Job s quote It doesn t make sense to hire smart people and tell them what to do we hire smart people so they can tell us what to do This ethos comes from the very top as the company founder has personal spoken to his belief that employees should be empowered to bring ideas to the table and may the best idea win However this is not the easiest path for management and employees seeking complacency For such a mature company there is still that start up drive to continuously innovate break the mold question norms and never stagnate I am fortunate to be part of this process as it meshes well with what motivates me to be creative and enjoy going above and beyond the call of duty
    - CONS
    14 West is currently on the tail end of a large management transformation This has been a challenge for many long term employees and can at times be off putting for new employees seeking comfortable consistency This is all good news however The career opportunities being afforded to enterprising candidates have the potential of long term sustainability and growth particularly as the company charts a course towards a more structured and predicable corporate structure My recommendation to current and prospective employees Keep an eye on the future There is a lot of foundation building happening right now under some exceptionally deft and adept leadership
