    Pros

    free food at the end of the night, if you close.

    hours are performance based, meaning if you aren't an 18 year old girl, don't expect to get over 12 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    people need money to live.. let us have more hours!!

    Great co-workers, very laid-back environment.

    Management is unappreciative, you work hard for crap pay, favoritism.

    Pay your employees better because you lose the really hardworking ones who actually give a crap about doing their job.

    Pros

    Fun and friendly co workers. Not a bad office or location. Strict hours, most people leave right at 5:30 every day so as long as you get your stuff done you can as well.

    Big "corporate" brand in Texas that looks good on the resume.

    Cons

    Very flawed company. Secrecy and politics of communication of inner working of company is very high and creates stress between and within departments. Very old school in the way they do things and not open to change. Have a better way to do something and can prove it with data? Don't waste your time running it up the flagpole once upper mananagement has already made a decision.

    They reward putting in the time over creative problem solving and achieving the goals that matter.

    Very strict, stiff corporate culture and work environment.. Big-brother like. Always being monitored from what you are doing on your computer, what time you show up and leave, and what you are wearing. Lots of gossip and drama at this company.

    Advice to Management

    Roland Dickey needs to drop his "my way or the highway" mentality, especially in areas he does not know a lot about. There are a lot of talented, hard working individuals in this company. Listen to their advice and make changes based on their recommendations.

    I enjoyed the work I was doing here, but felt very eesteictied, micro-managed, and under appreciated.

  11. Love it
