Great place to work as long as you aren't on a slow selling or failing product

Pros

Good compensation, benefits, interesting products to work on, upper management provides good insight on company's direction.

Cons

If you're on a failing product (through no fault of your own), you're going to have a bad time. Layoffs, unnecessary extra hours, and other unpleasant actions going on in your department while other departments celebrate, hire more people, and generally hurt your morale.

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Work space is comfortable and ergonomically minded
    Fun events

    Cons

    As mentioned above, the company itself is great. However, the management in the Finance-related department needs to be re-evaluated. The people in the upper management have no regard for the welfare of their employees, especially when many sacrifices are made to meet deadlines and quotas. Loyalty and strong work ethics are not appreciated and favoritism sadly exists with employees who do not uphold these values. People are left feeling afraid to express valid concerns on improving morale, workflow processes, and efficiency. Too much time is being spent on gossip and not enough on the business and welfare of the company and its people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please show more appreciation to employees who stay at their desks to do the work they were hired to do and express concern over those who would rather socialize during quarter end.
