Nepotism = Unqualified

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsBase salary and bonus opportunity are decent. Locations can be awesome depending on which office you work from. The CEO Jim Herbert is well-respected. If you're looking for a 9-5 job that won't be too challenging, this could be the place for you.

ConsNEPOTISM: Many unqualified people here got internships, vendor contracts, even VP titles because of who they know or are related to.
COMPLACENCY: Everyone around here has rose colored glasses, just assumes the best way to success is to stay exactly the same. Few people take any initiative to do new things to stir things up or take this company to the next level

Advice to Senior Management1.) Start hiring qualified people, not just your best friend's wife/daughter/nephew/etc. 2.) Offer better benefits. The best and the brightest talent require more than a paycheck. We want flexible work schedules, community giving programs, tuition reimbursement, and more. 3.) Understand that there are a lot of lazy people in the ranks who have no desire to take initiative to take this business to the next level.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
