I have been working at Merchant e-Solutions full-time

Pros

I have a lot of freedom to set my goals and priorities.

    I worked at Merchant e-Solutions full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Many individuals are intelligent and great people to work with.

    Cons

    Where to start....
    1. The location sucks. No walking distance restaurants except Specialty's. You'll get sick of Specialty immediately. Being next to Oracle does not help with the traffic either.
    2. The set up of the office is freaking ridiculous. It feels like you are in a call center and a sales person. Open cubicles, technically not even cubicles. It is just a long flat table with monitors on it. Your coworker is literally 3-5 feet away from you. Stretch out your arms enough and you will literally be touching them. Talk about no privacy and horrible working condition. Everyone can hear each other's conversations and it is impossible to take a call at your desk without the sounds of people talking in the background.
    3. The mindset of the company after being bought out by a Brazilian company only made things worse. Everything is 'oh in Brazil, we did it like this" "in Brazilian, this is how it's done" "the Brazilians want it done this way". Well you know what, welcome to the U.S. NEWS FLASH: things are done differently here, we actually have laws and regulations for the work environment.
    4. HR is a complete joke. It is run by idiots who knows nothing about HR. HR is only good at lying and making up their own rules and laws. They probably don't even know what the word "compliance" means. Also, HR team really take terminations lightly. They will fire anyone that they do not like personally. BEWARE of HR, they are not your friends. When given a chance, they will start singing like a canary and throw you under the bus. Their sole purpose is to protect the company only and spend their day sucking up to the management team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to manage. Your title is bogus and you do not deserve it. How can you lead a team or a company when you know nothing about properly building a business. No point in giving advice to the management team because the Brazilian way, is the only way. They will continue to run the company the way Brazil wants them to run it. Management team is the saddest thing that could have ever happened to this company. Good freaking luck!

    I have been working at Merchant e-Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people and location in Redwood City.

    Cons

    Age discrimination. Staff over the age of 40 are being let go in large numbers without reason and HR uses the term "at-will" employer. This place is getting real bad. No increase. Class division. Its a ship without a captain. Too many know it all have been hired at large salaries and things just get worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue.
