    Pros

    There are plenty of strip clubs in close vicinity.

    Cons

    * No 401(k) match
    * Expensive benefits ~ $400 for a single person per month
    * Pay below industry averages
    * No pay increases. Not even to compensate for inflation
    * On-call over the weekend
    * High turnover in every department and at all levels. Best employees leave in less than a year
    * Continuously adding to job duties
    * Old computer / cell equipment
    * Old applications that do not work with the latest IE browser. Continuously downgrade users' browsers as a workaround
    * No training
    * No SOPs
    * Backstabbing from managers
    * Managers have online degrees / certifications
    * Just acquired by RR Donnelley ... An equally awful company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire good and knowledgeable managers and employees. Pay higher salaries and provide benefits ... Yeah right, will never happen.

    Pros

    There are no pros to share.

    Cons

    The office I worked in was very negative atmosphere and lacked encouragement. Along that there was a lack of communication and lack of employee tree structure. No chance of moving up just laterally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a President that cares about his employees not just about himself and the profits.
