    Cons

    -70-80 hour work weeks are typical
    -1.4% payraises
    -Motivates through fear
    -High turnover (30%-50% on Intel Projects), so you are constantly doing 2-3 peoples jobs during the constant cycle of replacing employees who quit
    -No leadership, constant confusion over who's in charge.
    -Extremely unprofessional (borderline racist) environment
    -Burning you out is their goal
    -Senior managment views you as a number
    -Extremely political environment
    -Zero transparency

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees what they are worth and allow them the freedom to grow. The CEO is unanimously disliked by the vast majority of the company and only when he steps down will this company be allowed to truly succeed.
