Somewhere in between....

Middle Management (Current Employee)
New York, NY

ProsPeople are great. You make some great friends and there's the potential that if people like you, you can move up in the organization. There's also a big push to make it a better place to work which is really cool. Lastly, being able to work from home is a big plus.

ConsSometimes management really misses the mark in terms of recognizing the people who are actually keeping the ship afloat. There seems to be a real reluctance (or blissful ignorance) when it comes to recognizing the real doers within this company. It can be really frustrating if you're more of a doer and less of a talker.

Advice to Senior ManagementReward the right people and hold those accountable who never actually deliver on their lofty promises or who actually end up costing the company money and reputation as opposed to actually contributing anything of lasting worth. It's a shame that you reward talkers more than doers, and it's a shame that you don't invest in the people who are/were truly invested in the company and in making the organization great!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
