    I worked at FedBid as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Free food, drinks and snacks. lots of young people and recent graduates.

    Cons

    Pay is not great, even though I was only an intern the salaried employees made as much as I did. It is highly political environment, and the company culture is very strong- if you get it you get it, of you don't you're in trouble.

    I have been working at FedBid full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - There are a lot of young people who work there. Definitely a great place to meet friends and people right out of college.
    - The serve sandwiches and have breakfast every day. This does get old after a while though.
    - The tasks that they teach you do not take a brain surgeon to do well.
    - Can develop a decent amount of beginner workplace skills

    Cons

    - The management is horrible. There is constant change with no sense of stability. The C-Suite executives are constantly rotating, changing, being fired, etc.
    - 20-somethings are in management/director level positions. People with only ~3 years of work experience should not be managing 10+ people, especially at a company where there are only ~200 employees.
    - The will work you to the bone, for pretty much nothing and then you could possibly not have a job after their "busy season". They have mass firings (5+ people, sometimes more) at least a couple times a year.
    - There are a lot of family members who work at the company together and who can basically do no wrong. The CEO and Senior VP are Father and son.
    - The HR department brushes off complaints against Senior Leadership because they are too scared of the repercussions. I know several employees who have complained but have been told that's how it is or their complaint was brushed off.
    - They have unrealistic expectations and never meet their goals as a company. They expect their employees to meet super unrealistic goals for the various accounts. If they do not meet these, they are chastised and even yelled at.
    - Many members of management are not easily approachable. There is also no form of upward reviews. Several members of management also do not know how to perform the duties of those who work under them. A lot of the time the subordinates know how to do WAY more than their managers do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set realistic expectations and stick to them. Make the goals of the company attainable and stop changing the direction of the company every 6 months. Pay your employees better and offer more job stability. Have a system of checks and balances for upper management. Make sure one person does not have too much power.
