Pros

Fun, family-like atmosphere
Excellent management
Great training opportunities

In my opinion, there were not enough direct mentor opportunities, and career advancement was unclear.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I believe that having more opportunities to be mentored by upper management would be very beneficial, particularly in sales tactics.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Discounts, summer Fridays (although most of the time you can't leave early b/c there's too much work to do), salaries pretty competitive especially if you're an executive

    Cons

    Favortism, unprofessional work environment, under qualified, immature people in high paying, high power positions, back stabbing/throwing people under the bus is acceptable, no one takes accountability for their actions or projects. Long work hours, expected to take work home, expected to stay late.
    Just bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some people in high positions with some experience. Stop allowing directors and above to be completely out of line. Unprofessional behavior is unprofessional. Stop making excuses for it and get people with skills both personal and professional.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
