The grass is greener on the other side

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Norcross, GA

ProsThere are a lot of positives, but many come at a cost. The company pays higher, but this mainly due to the poor reputation and difficulty in hiring. The environment is fast changing and you get to touch a lot of different technologies, but this typically leads to things not getting fully implemented. The culture will also toughen anyone up and prepare them to deal with any situation.

ConsThe biggest downside is the hardest one to fix; the owner. Be prepared to be micro-managed and marginalized in what you do. Nothing happens without his detailed review which often is unpleasant and frustrating. There is no work-life balance as the company owns you in the office or out. Be prepared for phone calls at 6am or on the weekend. There is also the rapid turn-over of just not individuals but entire departments. I have saw HR for example turn over completely four times.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe biggest advice is to sell the company or let a professional CEO step in. Nothing will change unless it starts at the top.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
