No common yardstick for compensation, work expectations across the company

Pros

Plenty of technical work opportunities to grow and work with cool people

Cons

no work life balance.
disparity of pay....even within the same organization.
Middle management is a 'yes man' team
Each organization is held to a different standard...budgeting of time or money is never right.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management has 'double standards'
Focus on your people and align compensation practices with Industry.

    Pros

    smart people to work with
    you will learn multi tasking
    Management promotes learning, they will set aside separate time for you to learn a technology etc
    It all depends what team, what manager you are under. You might get lucky you might not.

    Cons

    Micromanagement environment, tasks sent out every day, status reports expected at end of day. They will tell you how to do something, when sometimes you know better. Kills your creativity.

    emphasys on numbers, not quality. Some managers care about the number of bugs closed, thats all.

    Slave driving and no appreciation for hard work. If you do 100% the following week expectation will be set to 110%, if you dont deliver the 110% you are below expectation, if you do the following week it will be 120%. If you want to work there forget about balance. Everyone works at least 10 hours/day, this is if you mutlitask and take advantage of every minute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop micro management, it kills creativity, and makes it not a pleasant place to work

    Pros

    Great company to work for when no one is dependent on you. You will definitely learn a lot within a short span of time, but work becomes monotonous after that.

    Cons

    Work becomes monotonous and no balance between work and personal life. From morning 9 AM till late night hours most of the employees are asked to work. And for some they do not have weekends

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please try solving the above problem. Till the employee resigns his skills are not recognized, the moment he resigns he is asked if he can take leadership position but why this kind of attitude? It used to be one of the best small compoanies to work for in the 2006-2008
