    I have been working at Bongo International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Essentially I like Bongo so much that I have helped a very good friend to get a job here. He likes it so much that he moved from Ohio to Florida. Best place I have ever worked at. Do I need to say more?

    I have verified that I am paid fairly based on salary.com for my position as an Implementation Specialist. I get a bonus every quarter eventhough i am not in sales.

    I have experienced awesome leaders from supervisor to CEO. I have learned more from them in a year than I did from all jobs combined. Leadership recognizes employees that put in the effort and practice what they have learned from. Doing this has caused me to obtain a raise and a promotion within one year of working for Bongo International.

    Another plus for me is there is not one strain of office politics that I have seen in EVERY other job. Everyone gets along well and everyone tries to jump in and help with whatever they can. Sometimes we hang out after work, even if it is just in the parking lot for 30 minutes talking. No one is in a hurry to get out the door here and everyone here enjoys the company of other Bongo employees. It really is unique in today's workforce to see this.

    Cons

    I have a hard time inserting a con, because the only cons are just plain nuances of working anywhere. For instance, management is very goal driven and expect you to hit those goals. None of the goals are unreasonable, and all goals are transparent. None the less they can affect your total paycheck. At every job I have ever done there are goals, and can't say this is a 'con' for working for Bongo.

    The only other con is that Bongo changes rapidly, if you want to call it a con. We are in constant growth pattern and this requires constant change. I love the changes as it is always something new, but I know of others that like to get set in their ways.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Thanks for having an open door and mind. If I had to ask for anything, it would be to bring back team building Thursdays!

    They will basically hire anyone that can speak English. I applied online and they contacted me. I came in, and they gave me the job. I should have known that was a sign of a bad job.
