    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The technology, some of the worker-level employees are great people. If you're a sports fan there's monitors showing sports in a lot of places about the workplace. The technical people are great.

    Cons

    They demand a 12 hour workday of everyone who is salaried: from the lowest paid admins to the managers. Very high turnover as people are misled when hired and told the long hours are "just temporary". Some of the managers are verbally abusive, others are hiring their friends and relatives regardless of competency: relatives with no skills for a particular job will get promoted over highly skilled employees. Very bad place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your employees with simple human respect, allow for a reasonable work/life balance, fire the half of management that promotes bad practices.
