Lots of flexibility but very little opportunity for growth

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

ProsLots of flexibility in terms of work hours, PTO, and telecommuting options.

ConsRegardless of your skills and accomplishments, promotions and salary increases are arbitrary and extremely difficult to obtain. Training for new employees is virtually non-existent. It's sink or swim. Not an ideal place for a long-term job.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest on professional development to retain talented employees and offer training tools to new employees. Reduce perks like free happy hours and instead reward your most productive employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
