    I worked at Carus full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very little pros here other than good people who are trying to make a difference but are held back by incompetent leadership of which the owner is the queen of incompetence.

    Cons

    There are so many cons I don't know where to begin but here's are a some: Poor technology and no desire to add new, incompetent and clueless leadership, especially the owner (Inga Carus), money spent on frivolous items like planes, limos and executive bathrooms while salary increases and incentives are withheld even though the company is highly profitable due to the actions and worth of the employees and not leadership. Work there only if you need a job and/or are in transition; otherwise, run and run away fast. This place is a black hole which will suck you in and not let go if you don't leave quickly, with no hope of positive change.

    I worked at Carus full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good place to learn on how not to manage, supervise and lead people.

    Cons

    Scary place to work. Dirty, unhealthy, and just a plain crap hole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some money to clean the place up. Stop wasting cash on limos and planes.
