A great company that is not so great to work for.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsGood vision, product & services; relevant to the marketplace. Legally and ethically sound organization. Promotes diversity in management. Strong group of employees.

ConsIf you are hired in below your experience (something that happens to many in this economy) you will almost never advance. Low pay compared to similar jobs with other companies. Culture is very slow to consider or accept change. Lower level managers/directors are more motivated to pace themselves and their teams to extend their job security. Bureaucracy rules and mediocracy is the result.

Advice to Senior ManagementAsk of each director, "do you have 20 years experience or 1 years experience - 20 times?"

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
