Pros

A free monthly lunch? You'll need that on their salary. Managers are pretty useless. So if your goal is too just survive without working too hard, this job will allow that as long as you smile and can hold a cordial conversation.

Cons

If this new minimum wage proposal passes, high school dropouts will be making only a little less than college-educated employees with college loans to play back. Promotions or a future? No, that's only for Europeans and the managers' friends. As far as senior management goes, cardboard cutouts motivate more productivity. Their seniors are more geared at maintaining the sheep than the workload. This is why good workers tend to be overworked because they end up overcompensating for those no longer applied. As long as no one complains, the managers ignore it. If you are smart and ambitious, there is no place for you here. If you are indebt and desperate, I'm sorry and good luck.

    Pros

    The company encourages employees to lead projects and all employees are expected to roll up their sleeves to get the job done. it used to have a fun family-type atmosphere.

    Cons

    Depending on the office, leading projects and upward mobility is based on likability not on performance. Management runs a popularity show. It is very disorganized and too much time is spent on meetings and tracking short term progress. Workers are highly undervalued and payed below market standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management lacks people skills and tact. Managers have little to no managerial experience. They micromanage and expend more time targeting employees weaknesses instead of cultivating strengths.

    Advice: Execute a 6-month management trial period for new managers. During the trial they must attend rigorous leadership trainings. At the end of the trial conduct an anonymous employee feedback survey. Based on the survey determine if they are ready to lead.
