    Politics, NO Loyalty to Employees, Terrible Salary, Overall Dismal Work Life

    Former Employee - Project Manager in Detroit, MI

    Pros

    NONE - this company will literally make you hate your life.

    Cons

    There is no personal growth. The politics of upper management are borderline illegal. The company is constantly fudging it's numbers, and all the employees know it. Constant rounds of employees being laid off. HR does not help in what we all know are illegal situations. You cannot trust anyone at this company. NO work/life balance. No creative environment that fosters growth. If you are good at your job, you will get let go. If you are bad at your job and everyone hates you, you will get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company and put everyone out of their misery.

    Pros

    Above-average benefits, up to five weeks of vacation, flexible work schedule, good people to work with, and nice cafeteria.

    Cons

    Located in downtown Detroit (long commute), management has never had a lack of vision, middle management is static, very poor communication from the top and what little we get is misleading at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lie to your employees by saying the company is not for sale and then soon after selling about a third of it.
