    Pros

    Everyone that works there is incredibly smart and driven. You almost won't find a more talented team anywhere.

    Cons

    There is literally no work/life balance. Employees are "expected" to work up to 12 hours a day (8 in the office, another 4-5 once they get home). If you happen to be "on-call" that week, don't expect to get more than 2 hours of sleep a night.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people so everyone else isn't getting burned out.

    Pros

    Easy job to get since it's a small company, great for first job out of school if you cant get something better. Pretty lenient, and relaxed environment. Small company feel.

    Cons

    Low pay, no HR department to keep the place a sane place to work, large work load.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time reviewing the ways you recruit and retain employees. Give more salary bonus and rewards based on some kind of structure. Pay for training.
