    Pros

    Little to no work; work is never tracked; free parking; free string cheese. Been here just under six months and received a bonus.

    Cons

    Management is the biggest joke I have ever seen. 12 Employees and 4 managers on 1 team. Everything within my team is, laughable!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From SVP down in IT need to be replaced. This company with save 40% of the IT budget with competent leadership.

    The relaxed atmosphere, central location in town, free pop

    easy to be fired due to poor communication, time off requests must be made two weeks in advance, working on all holidays, including Christmas

    Increase pay, min wage is almost $10. Expand site, allow for advancement, and for gosh sakes set clear expecations!
