Pros

I'm going to try to say things that have not already been said by most others. Technically, I would rate KIXEYE 4.5 stars, but as that is not an option I will round up.

Everyone is held accountable for their jobs. If you're not pulling your weight, you won't be here long. I greatly appreciate this as it eliminates weak links in departments. Some people think this contributes to an atmosphere of fear but if you are afraid for your job, you're probably not giving 100%.

I greatly enjoy the mandatory company Paintball outings every 6 months and the occasional renting out of the IMAX theater to see a movie. Each department also has their own regular outings to build teamwork.

Cons

Others have stated that the bar to get in is low, which is an utter lie. The bar to get in is set so high (sometimes frustratingly so) that I have seen many good candidates get rejected, including many of my personal references. The reason why this is a “Con” is that I've seen Management reject a candidate, that has been endorsed by several others that interviewed them first, with the thought that something better is going to come along. This causes positions to go many months without being filled, again with many qualified candidates getting passed over.

Basically, if you apply for a job here and get rejected, I would not take it too hard. You have to be something VERY specific to be accepted.

Advice to Management

Departments tend to work in isolated pods with only the senior management as the communication tool between them. This is a purposeful decision made by the CEO but I still question its validity. I would like to see more of a public exchange of ideas between departments.
