    Cons

    Too many low, mid and high-level managers giving you work to do. It's rediculous.

    Because it's a pool-based system for VPs and above, they overwork employees and don't hire enough so they can pocket the remaining budget money at the end of each fiscal year.

    Ageism: they will not hire someone in their late 20s and 30s hoping to break into the industry in an entry level position (AAE) as they like to start them out of college.

    It's very tough to transfer to the account side when you've been hired as an admin.

    No career growth for admins. Period.

    They run the private company as if it publically owned as they are so focused on profit. Even at the expense of employees.

    Turnover rate is alarming.

    Long hours, especially near the end of the fiscal year.

    A few long-term male managers are very flirtatious which creates an uncomfortable work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your reputation will continue to be reduced by both former and current employees, until you make changes to your management paradigm.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
