    Pros

    Co-workers are great, talented, smart.

    Cons

    So many missed opportunities to turn this company around. Not evolving. There is this thing called social media.. "Hello?" "McFly???" "is anyone home?" Ack. Stuck in an outdated mindset. I wish them well though.

    Pros

    Not much! You get your birthday off, that's about it.

    Cons

    Huge wage gap between male employees and female employees with the same title. Upper management has no idea about digital media. Unfair promotions, horrible office culture, no moral. Too many lay offs to keep track of.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company
