Upper management has no idea what they are doing.

Pros

Young, fun culture for people in their 20s and 30s.

Cons

Upper management refuses to hold mid-level management accountable for any amount of production. They all seem to be blind on purpose. Almost like a cult. It is as if they can do no wrong, which is a joke.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your subordinates are smarter than you. Stop acting like your title means something. You're still all idiots. You fire all the people that figure out what you are doing there, and keep everybody you can control. No room for new ideas that would work there. Way to run your company into the ground. You should fire yourselves.

    Pros

    I worked at the school I was attending so I got to work out a flexible schedule. It was a really easy student job so no pressure.

    Cons

    Sometimes I felt like I was being taken advantage of because of how hard I worked. I would often find myself being relied on to do things that did not seem appropriate for a student worker to be doing or have the responsibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs a better training protocol. I was trained by a receptionist who eventually left and then I had to train someone to take over my job. Unfortunately I was the only one who knew about any of my responsibilities.
