Great company, outdated and poor management practices

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsGlobal and well recognized brand
Free coffee/tea/drinks everyday and breakfast on Thursdays
Nice cafeteria, office space, and cubicles
Big budget to create with
CEO's are wonderful, personable, and easy to talk to

You will have meetings about meetings, and projects and decisions happen very slowly
Difficult to work cross-functionally
