    Pros

    Great compensation, flexibility and opportunity to exposure

    Cons

    No transparity with senior management. "We - they" enviornment. Not a lot of room for advancement. Products are not keeping up with the competition.

    Advice to Management

    Not a lot of respect for Senior Management right now. No clear strategic path. Management needs to listen employees.

    Pros

    Opportunities to perform a variety of tasks and projects; great people to work with; great product, even in the competitive and challenging online HR space;

    Cons

    Large, established company trying to figure out how to become young and nimble again makes for a very painful leadership environment; too much 'old school' thought still holding sway at the top (and sometimes in the middle echelons as well)

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to leave the past behind even if you think it will cost you customers

    Pros

    This place has been great overall. I was able to excel year over year and move into positions that generated more income for me.

    Cons

    Management has taken a turn for the worse. Moral is down and so is the stock. It appears the ceiling may have been reached.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to your sales staff. We are the ones that shape the company. Are feedback should be taken into consideration to have a more well-oiled machine working for you.
