ProsGood benefits and pay for now.

ConsNo work life balance. Poor management. Dysfunctional environment. Favoritism is rampant. Substandard office space.

Advice to Senior ManagementStrong individual contributors do not make good managers.

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

    Good company, but bad management

    Pros: It was a nice place to work with many perks. Cons: Management played favorites and messed with your bonus and stock… Advice to Senior Management: Promote people based on their ability and not how much… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
