Fear causes knee-jerk reactions to grind progress to a halt.

Director of R&D (Former Employee)
New York, NY

ProsIt's pretty easy to get hired. Within the first six months of your employment, everything will be pretty rosy. Things will be exciting and you will be filled with hope. The leadership is great at seeing a great way to do business, and is open to change. Generally speaking you will feel warm camaraderie with your peers. The work is definitely cutting-edge and progressive. Work attire is extremely casual, in fact the whole environment is very casual. The management tries very hard to make it fun to work there, including company lunches and breakfasts, when appropriate, and really goes out of their way to tell you how happy they want you to be.

ConsUnfortunately, the company is so open to change that it's constantly reinventing itself before the company has a chance to try the last idea. This leaves the company in constant (and unprofitable, flux). The management's solution is to hire fresh talent, which is immediately perceived as being the cure-all for whatever is wrong with the company, and whoever was previously doing the job is perceived as clearly an idiot who was bringing the company down - this despite the fact that the same euphoria and savior-dom was felt when the last guy was hired in.

The two owners are extremely passionate, but do not work well together, and as such are constantly pulling the company in competing directions. The company is not doing well financially, is extraordinarily in debt, yet the owners continually talk in optimistic terms. The workers who are actually the only source of innovation and are punished for imagined offences, are constantly on the defensive against unpredictable attacks, and on average enjoy a tenure of 7 months before they are either fired or have their salary reduced to untenable levels so they "quit"

Advice to Senior ManagementHire Someone else to run the company, and don't check in on them more than once every three months. You're good guys, but despite what you think, you're not good at business. You need to let someone else handle it, and remove yourself enough that your paranoia and fear of failure won't get in the way.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
