    Advice to Senior ManagementLay off the politics, treat employees as people

    Don't work here unless you want to do the job of 3-4 people and have zero work/life balance

    Sales Operations Analyst (Former Employee)
    Aliso Viejo, CA

    ProsThe senior management team are some of the highest quality people you will ever meet and are easy to get along with. The people in general are very high quality which is a testament to their HR recruiting practices.

    ConsThe culture and work/life balance is horrible. Everyone does the job of 3 or more people and if you aren't on call 24/7, you're not doing your job. The culture they are trying to develop echos this sentiment. This is the only job I've had where I felt guilty taking a full 60 minute lunch and taking time off for vacation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more people to spread the workload out and have defined job functions that don't overburden employees so they can have their own lives outside of work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
