    Dead end job, just a bunch of rich a-holes trying to get richer with no opportunities to get promoted. Depressing job.

    Pros

    They gave you time off.
    They let me work 4 10 hour shifts.
    HR was good.
    Flexible about time off sometimes.

    Cons

    Management was very aloof and disconnected from employees.
    Only care about the shareholders making money.
    No feedback from management about where the companies going.
    No opportunity for upward mobility.
    You just want to work just hard enough to not get fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a lot cooler to your employees and make it a fun place to work. Pay employees a lot more and fire the ones who don't cut it. Make it a place people WANT to work. Make it a place where the current employees WANT to work harder for you.

    Great place to work, if you happen to be one of the dozen or so people (out of roughly 400) actually making money.

    Pros

    If you're into audio, music, or film, the people who work here are amazing. I've made some very nice friendships with coworkers. Casual dress code keeps wardrobe cost down. The hours are attractive (9am to 5pm), and at first, it doesn't feel "corporate" - it does feel challenging yet supportive at the outset.

    Cons

    A year in, you've gotten as much satisfaction as you're going to get. Abhorrently low wage for the work. Next to no opportunity to advance. All of the money is concentrated among the executive cabinet, with a few scraps thrown to team leaders (project managers of long tenure). "Raises" that don't come close to covering inflation. "Performance reviews" that serve merely as a reason to withhold a meaningful raise and don't correlate to actual performance. Lots of carrot and stick. Dramatic layoffs (think like 20%) without any procedural changes, employees just expected to do extra time to make the money for the executives. For a company buying up competing and complementary companies with abandon, crying poor during layoffs and sorry raises is insulting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give good employees a reason to stay and a path to career advancement. Take some pay cuts yourselves, instead of just sloughing off one job in five.
