    Good Career Progression. Must do better with Employee Satisfaction

    Project Lead (Current Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsVery Good career Progression Paths.
    Resonably Good People to work with (Although depends on the account/vertical you work at)
    No dearth of opportunities.

    ConsNo regard for employee satisfaction.

    Benefits & compensation suck big time. No bother for employee retention.

    Not the smartest

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease pass on some profits to employees (Programmers, Project Leads, Managers) too. They are the actual bread earners.

    Constantly seek feedback about the support functions. They can really be improved & made employee friendly
