Great Benefits ... but the pays was so-so low for the San Francisco bay area

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsOne of the best benefit package around, and really good people (staff) to work with. Most of the time the work is fast paced and interesting.

ConsLots of politics, favoritism, work comes first - personal life second. Always felt like there was a game being played by upper management, but even as a supervisor, I didn't get a copy of the rules.

For being in the bay area, the pay doesn't really compensate for the cost of living, the nature of the work, and the stress one has to endure.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
