    Pros

    Great place to get your foot in the door and learn Linux. Laid back, free food, beer on Friday, cool game room, nice gym, HR is solid, upper management have a fairly open door policy. A lot of very smart people with a lot of share and learn from.

    Cons

    Pay isn't great. Management is young - but smart. Food sometimes sucks, but sometimes it's really good.

    Advice to Management

    pay better!

    Pros

    They have a free "meal" for each shift that rivals prison food...they way that the ticket response statistics are structured and the raw amount of tickets, etc. which come in on a daily basis there's a very good possibility to make decent bonuses for being above your quota every pay period. The pro side of hourly based salary is whenever you clock out you leave your work at work you'll never be called into work in the middle of the night or on your day off which has its advantages.

    Cons

    Most everything, the flexible schedules can become not so flexible whenever you need them to be flexible. Mislead concerning the salary, they had me to believe that I was to be a salaried employee but I came to learn that I was hourly instead; at the time I thought it to be a con but it could be either I suppose.

    Advice to Management

    Need to get a idea of the moral of the company, be an employee for a day or a week and see things from your workers point of view. The lunch is supposed to be a perk but the company is so cheap they don't want to spend enough money to get any decent food. Allowing employees to take a normal lunch and compensate them via they're pay checks might be a better idea.
