Former Employee

Quality (Former Employee)
Carlsbad, CA

ProsGood place to gain experience but I would not stay more than 3-5 years. Benefits are good. Salary ranges have not changed since the company started. Once you make it to a certain level, you never get another raise. It is almost impossible to get promoted. They might give you a new position but it's usually at the same salary.

ConsThey set goals that are unrealistic and unattainable. Part of the problem was because management has no idea how much time it takes to perform a job. My position required me to stay until 6-6:30pm every night, come in on weekends and to work on holidays, just to keep my head above water.

Advice to Senior ManagementThink about work life balance. Have defined career paths to get to the next level. Provide in house training to enhance employee knowledge.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    They know the price of everything, and the value of nothing.
