    Pros

    Competitive salary, flexible working hours, and normally closed between Christmas and New Years.

    Cons

    They are experiencing significant growing pains. There is a mentality that you are either a manager or a "doer", and company culture gets in the way of innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Management isn't engaged with people that report to them, and middle management needs to get rid of under-performers.

    Pros

    Decent benefits. A lot of tools. You will often feel the smartest person in the room.

    Cons

    Short term vision. Top heavy. Senior management ask why they have to invest for software when you can download phone apps for $1.99. A lot of people don't care.

    Advice to Management

    Trim senior management. Get new blood, not just for veneer.

    Pros

    Good management - Management are very focus on employees, their needs and their development.
    Relaxed atmosphere - there is a lot going on but I didn't feel stressed at all.
    Job satisfaction - a lot of the staff have been here a long time and are very comfortable within their job.

    Cons

    When I was there I felt there could have been better communication between managers and directors. There is a Shared Service Centre there which I think could do with reviewing as they are pretty separate from the rest of the Company and they seem to have their own rules which doesn't necessarily work for the rest of the Company.

    Pros

    excellent benefits, great year-end bonuses

    Cons

    This company does not value people. If you go to work there be prepared to work 24/7. They have no respect for personal time and are lead by members of the good ole boys club. The current management team are all buddies from previous employers and tend to hire one another so they move from company to company as a group. Most of their growth can be attributed to Amazon's huge growth in DC's and there not being enough integrators to do all of Amazon's work. The management team is a bunch of know-it-alls who think they have it all figured out but in reality their growth will not be sustainable once Amazon levels out.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Spend time with your employees. Value your employees.
