    Pros

    Fast pace, good for gaining experience. Training opportunities are there but it depends on which department or group you belong to.

    Cons

    Too much focus on bringing new revenue and almost no focus on retaining current customers. Quality of work suffers because of focus on speed.

    Pros

    Quality people and culture. Decent salaries plus competitive performance bonuses. Acceptable work / life balance. Strong benefits package. The company does a high level of community outreach and philanthropic work.

    Cons

    Recent changes and management and market conditions have affected stability. Company suffers from process paralysis. Annual bonuses were not given this year which has affected morale. I have little confidence in the leadership abilities of several mid-level VPs.

    Pros

    Great support & teamwork from fellow co-workers. Great products available for clients.

    Cons

    Mismanaged. Head of division was never around for very long so different management styles. Constantly changing culture of a lot of management, then trim the management, then back to adding a management. Yearly layoffs.

    Pros

    Good orange county company if you are looking for an 8-5 place Structured

    Lack of focus and direction - changes all day long Number driven British culture

    Advice to Management

    Establish a vision for the company and communicate to the employees Allow management to make some decisions, all decisions do need to occur are top level in costa Mesa

    Pros

    Good work life balance, great office culture and great hardworking people to work with.

    Cons

    No personal growth, no perks, compensation is on the low end. Company is moving all development offshore and has no plan in place to do this. Product management in the UK is so disconnected with the development in the US. There is no accountability in any of the teams. Too many contractors and not many employees, huge risk.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees. Allow for more training for employees. Pay market salaries.

    Pros

    Decent pay & benefits plan; pretty casual dress code; somewhat flexible schedule; family-like environment

    Cons

    Mundane work; current hiring freeze places more work the remaining individuals; quite often, there's too much work, and too little resources

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to keep your employees refreshed.
