    Pros

    Some of the best tech mind work here. Good exposure to cutting edge technologies, and a lot of opportunity to learn, contribute and grow.

    Cons

    No medium/long term vision. Things happen and change really fast, and at some point, you Erik feel disoriented and exhausted.

    Advice to Management

    Plan well, and try to sick to a well though out plan at least for a few years.

    Pros

    No letting people down when you call off, call off anytime take vacation anytime, every quarter you get new unpaid days off and paid days off and vacation is on every check. 10 hour shifts. So much overtime voluntarily, unless it is peak season then some overtime is not voluntary. Simple jobs to do that can actually be fun and you meet tons and tons of new freindly people and even learn abot new products you wouldnt have otherwise even thought about. Pay raises every quarter of 60¢ up to $15/hour. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Peak season (Nov-Jan 1st) would be one other the biggest problems, with not enough parking for all the new temps and employees that come in, I was late for work a couple of times just because of the massive traffic they had because of peak and it even takes 20 minutes or so to get into the facility and they didnt take my tardy off. Thats another thing if your late your late they take it out of your unpiad time off in incremints of 1 hour i think, but if you clock in 20 minites late but it takes an hour off your unpaid time, you will still get paid that hour from the pointyou clocked in. If you run out of unpaid time off you get fired.

    Advice to Management

    Give people a little slack, especially during peak season and slow the rate people need to meet just maybe down by 100.

    Pros

    - Challenging
    - Lots of opportunity to learn
    - Great work environment and perks

    Cons

    - Average salary and not growing at all per company's growth
    - After 2 years people feel demoted due to weird salary packaging model

    Advice to Management

    - Being frugal is great but providing almost free services to most customer isn't
    - Revise weird salary packaging model and salary as per company's growth
