    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Charlotte, NC
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Charlotte, NC

    Pros

    For size of city, downtown Charlotte is relatively livable. Affordable housing nearby, and good transportation options. (But suburbs can have nightmare traffic.) Project were enjoyable and supported. Colleagues were collegial. Good fit for a young professional.

    Cons

    I wasn't fired personally, but firings were frequent and seemingly arbitrary -- often coming as RIF percentages from corporate. It all contributed to an atmosphere of fear.
