Pros

If you want to work in a fun environment and receive product discounts, this is a good company. Pay is ok for retail.

Cons

Benefits are lacking. Not much time off for vacations or sickness. Management has poor communication with employees. No advancement potential.

Advice to Management

Think about how your actions affect the employees. Stop concentrating so much money into a few employees way above market rates.

    Pros

    This company has so much potential and opportunity. The compensation is good and I work with some of the most talented people. The org is fairly flat so opportunity to be noticed by management is good. The projects are challenging and very interesting.

    Cons

    SOME of Management seems to be on the old fashioned "Good ol' Boy' network so it depends on what team you are on if the employee's experience is good or not-so-good.
    Lot's of work with unreasonable deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    1.Be transparent and trust your employees wont sell the company secrets. 2. Try getting estimates from the employees assigned to projects instead of swags from Project Managers for more realistic timelines. If you work people too hard for too long, the pay doesn't matter.
