    I worked at Open Access Technology International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Honestly the people there were what made it hard to leave.
    -I was lucky to be in a role where I kind of go to do what I wanted as long as it was beneficial for the company.
    -Pretty easy interview process, but going in I really had no idea what I was getting into, they pretty much just talk about the company the whole time and don’t give you a chance to ask questions. I had no idea it was a part time position when I interviewed, but took the job anyway. It was honestly super nice to able to transition into working full time.
    - I got a lot of experience fast and was able to build up my resume very quickly.
    -The people there are awesome. I really liked the upper management as people, it was just the way the company was run that wasnt working.
    -They will pretty much just tell you you're moving departments and it's not really an option. Which, in my case was fine, because I liked my second job better, but I didn’t have choice.

    Cons

    -VERY LOW PAY.
    - No room for growth, unless everyone above you quits (which is likely)..
    - Depending on your department, your title will never reflect the job..I was actually told that I wouldn’t be given the title of my position because then they would have to pay me more.
    -Pretty much all part time people start at the same pay. If you have a bachelor’s degree and you're an admin assistant, communications specialist, receptionist, or human resources assistant..doesn’t matter, you'll all be paid the same.
    -Also, those entry level developers can make, easily, 15-20k more almost anywhere

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People aren’t just writing reviews because they have a chip on their shoulder and even if you ignore the reviews, it doesn’t mean they're not true. What the CEO doesn’t understand is that the people he is employing will always act like children if he treats them as such.
    Also, people aren’t going to be happy if they can never afford to move out their parents’ house while working there. Pay a little more and hire people that are talented and will stay because they want to! Loyalty is earned, you can’t demand it.
