    Pros

    - CEO is a great guy, created a very successful business and legacy
    - Many analysts are very competent, passionate and hard working

    Cons

    - Difficult atmosphere for lower-ranking employees
    - Good ol' boy's club, sexism and high level of nepotism
    - Co-workers have little tact.Cliques and bullying are rampant
    - Valued more for who you know than your credentials
    - Little room to advance
    - Tedious, unstimulating work
    - Exploitaton of employees' good will
    - Conservation and environmental sustainability is not a priority

    Advice to Management

    - Show your hard working, less visable employees that you value them
    - Be honest with your employees and avoid being passive aggressive
    - Practice tact
    - Gossip is rampant...please be aware of this and do not participate
    - HR is biased and chooses favorites, making it impossible to resolve issues

    Pros

    OMG! This place is awesome. The CEO actually cares! The people CARE about you, work, doing a good job and the best is that people want to work as a team! IT is so fun. I feel like it is not even like working. I love it!! Everyone is equal here. It is like everyone is just as valuable as everyone else. It feels awesome! You should be a self starter to work here.

    Cons

    nothing. I worked at another office and this place is sooooooo much better.

    Advice to Management

    keep it up

    Pros

    This is a laid back company that offers flexibility, great health benefits, decent pay, variety of clients / projects, and on the most part good people.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for advancement (to advance it was based on politics rather than knowledge/talent). The company is top heavy..,meaning more managers securing the work rather than people to actually do the work.


  6. Fantastic place to work--so employee-centered, it's magical.

    Pros

    Great employee benefits. They'll pay for your health insurance and heavily subsidize the cost of insuring family members. They'll give you an HRA to even further reduce your medical costs. They'll match your 401K generously. They'll increase your weeks of vacation time the longer you are with the company. They'll give you ESOP shares every year. They'll give you generous bonuses twice annually (tied to company profitably, but they are ALWAYS highly profitable).

    Pay is amazing. They pay everyone, even support staff working in traditionally low-paying roles, well above industry standards.

    Employees are friendly and professional. Most folks are a bit older and further along in their careers, but the company has been recently bringing in a bit of new blood (smart twenty-somethings) that are refreshing and fun to work with.

    CEO, VP, CFO, etc. are all warm, wonderful, friendly people who you can chat and laugh with. No pretensions here. Upper management are all-stars who work hard and lead through example. They truly care about all of their employees and show that on a daily basis.

    Encinitas office is right on the beach. One of the most beautiful locations I have ever worked in.

    If you get a position at this company, it is like winning the lottery. Take it. It is one of the best career moves you will ever make.

    Cons

    None to report. They should keep up the good work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing work. Your employees are so grateful.
