No opinion of CEO

Pros

-Free bus pass and no monthly health premiums -$0.50 match for 401k (but not a huge match amount in total) -40 hours a week only and stable

Cons

-Strict dress code (slacks and tie everyday including FRI) -Slow growing management structure. -Non approachable upper management (40+ year old males) who thinks you're stupid for asking questions -12-20% lower in salary compared to industry standard -Old fashioned on technology and cheap to employees. (No higher-end coffee for free nor snacks)

Advice to Management

Get your stick out of your a$$es and be approachable so you can teach the younger generation how to perform FOR you instead of making them think they should quit.

    Pros

    -few work overtime. -depending on your role, failure to meeting goals has no consequence. -downtown location -you get to play dress up everyday. -you won't have to worry about keeping your skills up to date. -free bus pass -health insurance is covered by employer (but your salary reflects this)

    Cons

    -No career growth -No mentoring or skill building -Incompetent managers are in charge of delegating work. -The majority of talented people leave within 3 years- management will just say "It's not for everybody!" - it apparently isn't for about 30% of the QA staff, the turnover rate is outrageous, yet the problem is always squarely pegged as a "bad hire".

    Advice to Management

    Rewards productivity and achievement, nuture growth and mentoring. Implement what outside consultants advised. Be more flexible with time off, increase vacations and make the salaries more competitive.


  2. Stable position with good work-life balance and health benefits, but lower than average salary and vacation.

    Pros

    Little overtime on most teams; training opportunities; lots of promotion from within; low attrition rate; excellent health benefits; stock purchase plan.

    Cons

    PTO is more limited than other companies; salary slightly lower than average; low attrition means some dead weight sticks around.

    Advice to Management

    Increase PTO just a bit to help employees. Too many people work when sick because of the limited sick and vacation.
