    Pros

    Free drinks in the break room. Free lunch on Fridays. A constant employee turnover means that you'll be able to meet new friends whenever they replace one of your co-workers.

    Cons

    Once hired, training is nonexistent; you're shown the code and simply told to "be an expert". Documentation for the code manages to be both sparse and inaccurate at the same time. Deadlines are set without negotiation; estimates are met with "that isn't good enough. It needs to be done by-" without any discussion of the problems with that possible date, or requests for information about why the original estimate was what it was. Any mistake is met with insults from your manager, and if anything goes wrong, a frantic search goes on to find a scapegoat to punish. Testing is nonexistent. No clear chain of command; any request made by your manager may end up infringing on the systems under the control of three different people, all of whom insist you do nothing for fear of messing up their own programs, and any attempt at referring this conflict to management is met simply with a restatement of your original objective. Constant oppressive gloom of fear coats the entire company; I don't believe I saw a single person smile while on the premises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    An oppressive atmosphere of fear and ignorance only extracts the minimum amount of work from employees needed to get you to go away. Either start treating your employees better, or hope word doesn't get around about you.
