    Pros

    Fairly flexible working hours. Friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    There is 0 corporate culture. I feel like it's everyone for themselves, and that my supervisor uses my work to impress their boss without giving credit where it's due. It's understandable behavior given the situation, but not exactly a great place to grow and be rewarded long-term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs training. Don't hire young management and let them loose without any idea how to manage. The problems are compounded by a lack of clear expectations for all.

    Pros

    The downtown office location is unbeatable. The lower level staff are great and treats each other very well.

    Cons

    This company has the worst bunch of managers that I've ever worked for in my entire career. Few have any idea what they're doing so everything is always a crisis and they micromanage you to death and will blame you for anything that goes wrong. Management never owns up to anything, everything is always a staff's fault. When anything goes wrong and lots of things go wrong at Beacon, the first thing they look for is who is to blame before they look for the solution to the problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company is in desperate need of a management overhaul. Sell the company and let the new company do house cleaning of this top heavy bloated bureaucracy.
