Pros

Good culture, beer hour is nice, gym, nice location.

Cons

Management is too young and inexperienced. Work is based on who you know-like a giant high school. Pros listed above have nothing to do with work.

Advice to Management

Start looking at the process and stop just blaming PEOPLE. Changes have been made but the same problems and issues are there-they have not gone away. Hmmm wonder why? Get rid of everyone manager on up and bring in adults from the outside.

    Pros

    benefits and compensation are solid. Beer/Social hours are nice perk

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs have left current employees with low morale. Management tends to keep layoffs throughout isolated departments very quiet, yet people talk and are aware that the chopping block is constantly there. Lots of corporate politics, you need to be in with the right crowd to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with changes to the organization
