    A great startup experience for the first couple years. Heavy workload without advancement led to burnout.

    Pros

    Work from home.
    Flexible schedule.
    Initially provided me with an opportunity to advance my career.
    Provided laptop and cell phone for work purposes.

    Cons

    Company set unreasonable expectations, goals for employees.
    Lack of support (ie: technical glitches, refusal to allocate basic resources, late payment).
    Too many layers of management.
    Fiscally irresponsible.

    Advice to Management

    Let the employees do their jobs and don't mess with projects you don't understand. Set reasonable goals and stick with them instead of changing goals and expectations every few weeks.
