    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on employees in a competitive market. Develop employee growth programs and provide realistic timelines for strategy executions. Hiring more managers will not help in achieving customer success or innovating to beat competitors, which in turns builds a brand.

    Pros

    Better than average salaries and benefits with a casual working environment

    Cons

    Extremely under qualified executive management with very short sighted thinking. Very high attrition rate for all especially within their management teams. The company looses most clients after their contracts expire and most do not return. The culture is to continue to drive new sales ti back fill attrition though the do not track attrition. Most the execs work in San Francisco while the company is headquartered in Arizona creating a large disconnect between management and operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay yourselves less. A company grossing less than 200 million a year does not need to be paying the executive team 10% of those revenues. Focus on your clients and not the street. They year of the customer should not be just a one year sales theme...it should be your mission statement.
