Pros

Good location, benefits, pay. Flexibility

Cons

Reorg took a year and a half and has led to lots of instability. Required working three jobs instead of my one since they laid off so many people. No support in the crazy times of ridiculous workload.

Advice to Management

Don't lay off people during the busiest time without having people to backfill the positions. Why hire contractors when you just laid off people with better skill sets? Wait 90 days to get through the busy time nyc then lay them off

    Pros

    Good location close to nice restaurants, shopping, museums, etc.
    Free flu shots
    Easy access to BART, Transbay Bus Terminal and Ferries

    Cons

    Unhealthy work environment in terms of support and career advancement
    Management will give lots of praise and assurances of your value to company, but do nothing to support your career advancement

    Advice to Management

    Value employees that work hard and deliver on work that promotes company profitability instead of promoting only their managers.

    Pros

    A few managers allow telecommuting
    High paying jobs
    Good location for bart commuting
    Doesn't require you to be ethical and/or honest

    Cons

    Politics rule! More important than company mission!
    Productivity is severely hampered by: constant worry about lay offs, not getting on someone's bad side, playing the blame game,
    Terrible employee engagement scores on our psychological well being - but now that our bonus is tied to our engagement score - that will get the scores up and who cares about the truth (see pros)

    Advice to Management

    New CEO get your head out of the clouds - you've extended blind trust to your leadership team, not smart trust. Its a mess in the trenches & you don't know or don't care.
