Pros

Some truly wonderful people. Good compensation. Great business model poised for continued success.

Cons

The company is experiencing serious growing pains. The marketing organization is in upheaval and the politics are embarrassingly bad. Teams plot against one another. Executives and middle management alike are fighting to stay relevant so they are always managing upward, plotting against their peers and posturing. Management does nothing to support their teams and even offer up the occasional scape goat for slaughter as a distraction. Work-life balance is lauded by top executives, but in reality, it's frowned upon. Some of the highest paid executives work from home offices in remote locations (even at the c-level) while individual contributors located at headquarters are discouraged from telecommuting even a day a week.

Advice to Management

-Put the microscope down on the marketing organization and start addressing the bad behavior running rampant in the management ranks. -Start investing in employees instead of treating them like easily replaceable commodities. -Create a real vision for the company and make sure it's communicated at every level so we're all working toward identifiable goals (and I don't mean numbers) -Try to manage the culture more closely, because it's changing, and not for the better.
