Technical direction is top down via CTO. His word is God and everyone too scared to disagree.

    Pros

    Good location that is easy to access.

    Cons

    Interviewed and hired for one job, but was told to do another. Hired as a consultant, but expected to stay at location whether there was work or not. There tended to be groups of friends that advance each other. Clients were taken from people to lure new employees, which effected current employees base salary.

    Advice to Management

    Company is not run professionally. It is time to seriously address this issue.
