Pros

There were some positive items, but they were far out-weighed by the negative items.

Cons

At first the company appeared to be somewhere you would like to work and make a career, even if the interviewing process was unbelievable. Once inside you became aware of a company that was not organized, consistent, or interested in addressing their issues. Their approach to the staff is not with thoughts of staff first, but rather close to the bottom of the list. The staff turnover was horrendous. The percentage of staff that left/joined the company each month was in the double digits, and not just in the low double digits. No communication between (senior) management and staff; good, bad, or in-different. Consequently, when there is a change it is a complete surprise. The company strives to be process oriented in their work, including staffing, recruiting, contracts, and cost management. However, at times their approach prevented them from addressing the “reality” of the situation.

Advice to Management

Start over....at one time there was a thought to recruit talented management and senior leaders, but that was scraped to minimize costs and value of the company.

    Pros

    Location. You can work from home when you need to.

    Cons

    There's no communication, not even within individual departments. Constructive criticism is not welcome, as it would be an insult. It is decided from day one if you are welcome in the "in crowd". If you are not part of the "inner circle", management will make it known and you will be ostracized and will be out in 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring your friends and co-workers, which I believe is called "cherry picking". And as I understand, it goes against OFCCP regulations.

    Pros

    Location, flexible work hours, usually the company picks up lunch every month for everyone.

    Cons

    The culture literally is focused around drama. Many people (especially HR) generate issues/drama and watch the ripple effects flow throughout the employee population. Trust is a huge issue, everyone has a hidden agenda is out for themselves. Nothing you say within the building is truly confidential, plan on every word out of your mouth being used against you later down the road.

    It's honestly very similar to the fall of the Roman Empire. The company is in dire shape, and the upper administration team is living the high life while your lower level employees are stuck working extra hours and getting laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Actually be on-site more. Many of you show up around 10am and leave at 3pm every single day. Then when many of you are in the building, you can walk by your office and see you playing on your smartphone. That doesn't sit well for the people who are out trying to actually do a decent job.
