    Pros

    Salary
    Opportunities to learn new things, start new projects

    Cons

    Management was unclear on expectations and continuously stays on employee's cases even when the customer and account team are pleased with performance. Several people fired prior to their 90-day review and it seemed like they didn't even stand a chance regardless of how many hours they put in or how many questions they asked.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the customer and account team's feedback more often.
