    Pros

    Great team members. A very young and lively workforce that are a lot of fun to work with. The office location in San Francisco is terrific as well, right in the middle of downtown and has the hustle and bustle of downtown SF. Great location right by the Montgomery Bart Station as well. The office is very nice as well.

    Cons

    Employees are not promoted based on performance, but rather based on how well they are able to brown nose and become managers favorites. I have consistently performed and reached around 130% or more of my quarterly goals, and yet my manager has consistently given me negative feedback and held me down from a promotion (NO ONE is able to be promoted unless their manager gives their approval).

    The company does a very good job making sure the first couple months employees are shown what an amazing company they are working for, but the moral and happiness of employees who have been here for 9 months or longer is INCREDIBLY low and the turnover rate is high (management does a great job keeping this out of the media's attention).

    The career trajectory is very poor for certain business lines as well.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the advice your employees are giving you, and promote employees on a performance based metric rather than their ability to brown nose and kiss up to their managers; this will not only help the company retain talent and increase the satisfaction of the workforce but also make the company more productive.
