    Pros

    Good place for junior / newly educated as they are taught well here. Also easier to get in with less education than many companies.

    Cons

    A lot of turf war has bad impact on morale, projects and execution. No customer focus. High turn-over. Company always changing. Ethics so-so. Too many cowboys.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The basics of the company ain't working, and reorganizing isn't going to solve it. Management needs to sort out quality at top and mid-level first, and stop turf wars.

    Good but watch out if they try to hire you as a contractor, it's a warning they might not keep you

    Pros

    Pay is excellent to start with, very competitive. Recruiters and most people at the company are friendly, everyone works flex hours

    Cons

    The company spent over 1 month interviewing and aggressively recruiting me because of my qualifications. Turns out I was overqualified for the position. Stayed 2 months before being laid off due to lack of work even though I was told how busy they were at the time I was hired. No complaints from anyone about my job performance since I was never trained for the job - they had me opening mail and filing the entire time instead of what I was hired for. Waste of 2 months for a job I can't even list on my resume. Pay raises for office staff are barely 3% and that's if you're lucky.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some managers with spines, most that I saw were controlled by their senior staff. Need better communication with staff. Stop having so many meetings! Never sure exactly what they are trying to tell employees during these meetings, they seem to be a way to waste time.
