Certain manager lacks basic human management skills.
Very poor training if any at all.
Management make false career promises to lure cheap labor.
Corporate atmosphere is horrible although they do try to make a random act of kindness once in a blue moon.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Respect employees and treat them with at least some respect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your employees a reason to stay. Make them feel appreciated. Without an incentive, employees aren't driven to provide quality work – This is why the product is buggy, customers are unhappy and your best employees are leaving

    Pros

    The companies overall product is interesting. Privacy and security is a real concern for many both here in the US and abroad.

    Cons

    No true vision and direction. A majority of the users non-US with constant fires being extinguished when our product is blocked. The long term goal isn't clear to anyone.

    My major issue is that no one internally knows what the other person is doing. Individual projects are done secretly, development of products or metrics are months if not years behind. Management is overly aggressive with out providing the tools or the man power needed. Employee retention is poor and medical benefits are horrendous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Smile a little. Treat your employees better we are replaceable but there's no need to make us feel that way. We can always find work elsewhere.
