What a nightmare of a company to work for!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

Pros- Interesting service concept
- Company is growing quickly, which can be exciting
- Employees are young, hard-working group
- Donut Wednesdays

Cons- Horrible work-life balance
- Very little vacation time (8 paid days per year, and it's on an accrual system)
- Most employees are not receiving nearly close to what they they deserve to be making
- Benefits suck
- Commission structure in certain teams is unbalanced and, oftentimes, unfairly distributed
- Company is not very well led from a management perspective, not to mention management is completely uninspiring
- No information sharing
- Good luck getting recognized for your hard work, but don't be surprised to be scolded for minor mistakes
- Management doesn't set strong expectations or goals for advancing within the company
- Many of the people who work there are robotic or just have poor attitudes, likely due to the poor pay/benefits, horribly long hours, and lack of solid leadership at the company

....too many others to mention!

Advice to Senior Management- Learn how to properly run a business
- Treat all employees the same -- this means fair pay, better benefits, and better leadership so expectations are clearer
- Eliminate the specious 'growing company' BS...Sure, the company's growing like crazy, but this isn't translating to higher pay, more promotions, or anything of that nature. Just more money in the pockets of incompetent management.
