    Pros

    You have a chance to get a series 3

    Cons

    the problem with this company is there are a lot of bad and ineffective managers. These managers pal around with other bad managers and form cliques. Then bad workers pal around with these managers forming another clique which gets them promoted causing this vicious cycle of incompetence. The strong employees who don't kiss butt to join the cliques are usually outcast because these inept individuals feel threatened and are either let go or leave.
    The managers are only focused with developing their own careers and do nothing to develop those under them.

    Advice to Management

    You must develop a management training program that is completely separate from the current management's input.

    Pros

    Free coffee, water, but please bring your own mug. They even cut budgets in cups.

    Cons

    no career advancement at all. the compensation is a joke. they give some employees 3% yearly raise and they think its a mercy.

    Advice to Management

    Please focus on your employees, treat them like asset of the company, dont treat them like liability.
