I have been working at ShaneCo full-time (more than an year)Pros
The people are great, for the most part.
The company cares about morale and does nice things like employee breakfasts, pot lucks, contests, and the like.
The employee discount is lovely.
A lot of people have great intentions and are fun to work with and learn from.
Can switch positions as business needs dictate, which is great for learning and for resume material.Cons
Extremely unstable. IT Management fires people at the drop of a hat, so you can never cross someone or make any mistakes, or you are out of there.
Not nearly enough vacation time offered; below curve on that and sick time.
People are usually hired as contractors first, so no benefits or time off for six months, then you have to be a regular employee for another six months to be allowed to take time off, so no days off for an entire year for most new hires. That is difficult.
Turnover is scarily high.
A lot of yelling, some verbal abuse, all of which is tolerated.
No external training offered or paid for.
Pay scale is considerably lower than comparable businesses in the area.
Health insurance plan is truly terrible.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Stop firing good people. Stop with the abuse. Work to keep good employees; they are very valuable. Pay according to what the standards are for this area. Increase benefits.Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookApproves of CEO
