    Soul Sucking Poor Management

    Pros

    The potential upside of the stock payout in 4 years. Lots of really enthusiastic people (well initially anyway)

    Cons

    Soul crushing work hours. Expected to be available 24/7. Some of the poorest management skills I have seen. Benefits for medical are average and the 401(k) is a joke. You don't vest for 3 years on the company match. Just another handcuff. The Anytime Feedback tool is a passive aggressive way of feedback for any employee to spew frustrations without any justification whatsoever. Oh, and you can spend your lifetime writing white papers that often go nowhere. How archaic in the only way to present or discuss an idea. I don't know how many trees are killed to print on paper (heaven forbid a soft copy) and then to sit all together in a room to read and discuss. Time killing and brain numbing exercise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think of ways to be more innovative. Dump those terrible managers. This is not a place to tolerate such poor behavior. be more flexible and provide better work environments.
