    Pros

    Did not see my boss every day Thank God for that. Given freedom to do your own thing

    Cons

    No processes were across the board. One person didn't know what the other was doing or where they got their information. Employees afraid to ask questions to management b/c they thought they would get laid off or reprimanded. Out-side the box thinking was not encouraged. Being smart and efficient will not get you ahead in this company only if people like you and you kiss but. I would not recommend to anyone

    Advice to Management

    Stream-line work process for management team. Ask employee how their managers are doing. Bad Managers give the company a bad reputation.

    Pros

    Overall, the folks in my department were wonderful.

    Cons

    A few bad eggs here and there, though. But they didn't tend to last long. 2 lay-offs in a 6 month period.

    I enjoyed my job there the entire time. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Thought I would be shifted into the position of which I was training for and working on for the last months and instead, it was not even an option. Job eliminated along with many others.

    Pros

    Strong financial position could take them far.

    Cons

    Leadership has their head in the sand regarding some of their management. Constant staff attrition should be a huge red flag but they choose to ignore it, probably because leadership is spread all over the country and their is no oversight.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at your human resources metrics and make decisions based on the numbers. They are telling a true story and sadly you are losing good people because you are ignoring the data.

    Pros

    Vision of what the company wants to achieve is amazing, exciting, and will be very rewarding in the future.

    Cons

    Lack of planning, leaping head first into opening plans is a bad idea. The culture is disjointed at best with silos everywhere. It can be incredibly frustrating to try and get an answer because the silos to work together or talk to one another.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down, plan your strategy before executing it and then revisit it along the way and self correct if necessary.

    Pros

    Amazing health Insurance and Organization's efforts in taking care of employee's health.

    Cons

    This relates to Software Testers only (not to other part of this organization). What ever the organization preaches about i.e core values are not seen being observed. You will get a nice feeling during your initial days but not all the time. They do not understand your real time problems and do not appreciate extra efforts that are being put in. When you you are an immigrant ...you skin tone also plays a role. It is worth working some where else than spending your valuable time and knowledge here.

    Advice to Management

    Please do a deep dive into each of your branches to find out what is happening inside and try to know why people are leaving from Full time positions also.
