Absolutely one of the worst companies to work for

Finance (Former Employee)
Frisco, TX

ProsLavish parties and vacations for senior management
Senior executives get lots of perks

ConsCompany has never met its targets yet continues to lavish executives with perks
CEO is a nice person but incredibly arrogant and never misses an opportunity to self promote
The strategy for the company is to expand to drive growth and then slash quickly when that fails

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen you are not hitting your targets cancel the Bora Bora trips and have your management meetings in a hotel conference room somewhere in Frisco
Stop pretending that you are the next big thing; Your business has shrunk every year for the past five years.. you just masked it with acquisitions.

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