Pros

If you work hard and are on the exec's good side, you will be awarded with additional compensation, be recognized and have the opportunity to advance to some extent. Lots of exposure, lots of experience if you push.

Cons

Upper management and executives don't seem to appreciate entry and mid-level employees. You are expected to work VERY hard, and despite that, still will likely be underpaid. It can be an abrasive, uncomfortable environment at times - small company that grew fast without proper structure.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Appreciate all your employees, even the entry or mid-level folks. Employees will be more loyal if you are loyal to them - compensate and praise appropriately.

    Pros

    Lots of nice, friendly people working in the office. Interesting technology.

    Cons

    Negative work environment, lots of longer term employees seem bitter and unhappy. Overtime and extra unpaid work is to be expected if you are salaried with career options and growth being limited. Working long hours does not equal career growth.

    Upper management would prefer to hire from outside rather than promoting and growing talent from within. Why fix something that isn't broken seems to be the thought process.

    An underlying problem is the company's quick growth without proper structure in place to support the growth. Basic things like reviews, compensation evaluation, goals and career growth are non-existent. Overall, not bad if you need a paycheck but not a place to grow your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees and value their contributions, provide more opportunities for career growth. Give employees a reason to care and be loyal aside from a paycheck.

    Pros

    Seems to promote good culture with fair benefits...great christmas party etc.

    Cons

    Overworked, underpaid and very much run by overzealous individuals that have little respect for employees and their families ties....hold back on raises and often excuses not to give them....upper management...vp plus level ruthless and only concerned about meeting their numbers even if it means killing families...little family values!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect employees have families and if you don't reward their hard work...then you are holding them out as your pawns to make the top happy and get your bonus while killing families and taking away from morales!!! Middle management working so hard without recognition and it is obvious because of the pressures you pass down to reward yourself and not the true money makers....take one leg away and you only have 3 if you are a dog as they treat you...get off your mighty horse and understand each job description...too many switch a roos in management and they have no idea what you really are supposed to do!!!
