Extremely negative work environment

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Culver City, CA

I worked at Mahalo.com

Pros-Great coworkers (you will make some life-long friendships here)
-Laid-back work environment (t-shirts, jeans, sneakers, hats--anything goes)
-Great benefits (out-of-pocket is between 0-15% of overall cost, depending on your coverage)
-Plenty of parking
-Washer and dryer on-site

Cons-A demeaning and unprofessional leader of the company
-A lot of hours for little pay
-Location (an industrial-like area)

You will be micromanaged to the point that you wonder why you're even here (do NOT underestimate this). It is normal for employees to be humiliated, belittled, and cussed at by your boss with the entire office watching. Spare yourself the constant negativity and look elsewhere.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone. In such a negative environment, how can you inspire and motivate those who work for you? Failure is the only option at this point. After five years of trying to find something that works, it's obvious that the company is going nowhere.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
