    Pros

    Decent corporate culture (much better than investment banking), committed to diversity
    Very LGBT-friendly and committed

    Cons

    Terrible IT and work infrastructure
    Useless human resources - if your complaint isn't about sexual or racial harassment, forget about help from HR
    Very low salaries - a 1.5% raise is considered a merit raise (REALLY!), leading to a serious employee retention problem
    Next to impossible to get promoted
    Inconsistent management - managers are provided no training on how to actually manage people
    And if you're considering taking a job in communications, think twice!

    Advice to Management

    Hire a decent CTO and communications managers, spend some serious money on infrastructure, listen to employees, and start paying your people better
