One of the best employers in the area. Employees do come first, unless it's money.

Pros

This company is energetic like a startup but profitable. Growth is continuous. To succeed here, you must work hard and like to be challenged. Those on here that leave bad reviews, note that they complain about work hours and that they can't browse the web for sports scores. This isn't home, this isn't daycare, this isn't an internet kiosk, it is a business who's goal is to employ the best talent and lead the industry. If you didn't make it here, then you have failed, not the business.

The CEO and Chairman are good people, and care very much for their employees. I have seen them help many that have turned and taken advantage of them, but they still give.

A very charitable organization.

Cons

Some teams need formal training, like Sales, Customer Service, and Operations.
Benefits could be cheaper, but hey, we are all faced with Obama care. The company pays allot as well!
Tuition reimbursement is a must!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be point blank! We are driven to be honest with customers and partners, be honest with us.
When the company makes more money and breaks volume and profit records, share with the employees, instead of introducing new comp plans every time someone starts to get paid well.

    Pros

    The energy of the office is great. High energy and a lot of movement - everything move fasts there which is exciting. The employees are also very friendly and pretty outgoing. Face value, the culture is good. Also the CEO and executive team for the most part are very personable and approachable - pretty much everyone has a nickname.

    Cons

    Revolving door - people are in and out of there all the time due to being fired and resigning. For a company that is about 200 employees total, they do about 100+ terminations a year - and that is not an exaggeration.
    The benefits also are not very good and they are expensive.
    The comment on here about drug use is true as well - a lot of young and immature people work there which means a lot of drama and gossip.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take control of the gossip and drug use - sometimes it feels more like a college dorm than a workplace.

    No training, scatterbrained senior management, no processes, nepotism runs rampant
