So much potential... So much chaos...

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Columbia, MD

Pros- Focused on revenue growth
- Really bright analytics/statistics minds
- Most people work hard and care
- Pretty office with nice cubes

Cons- Zero communications between/among teams.
- No investment in products or sustaining anything but jobs that are "here and now".
- No loyalty to people.
- Incredible staff turnover.
- Little focus on real accountability. I literally heard senior managers say they used "surround sound" to determine reviews. That means what other people are saying about someone behind their backs. That is not the same thing as "360 degrees".
- It may be a "private company", but the new private equity backers expect a return. They are funny that way. And poor management will result in poor earnings growth. Welcome to pseudo-public accounting.

Advice to Senior ManagementEvery growth company has phases where the demands on a staff outstrip the capabilities of the original people. Those that got you there often cannot get you to the next level. It is time to make tough, hard changes starting with senior management. Someone has to stand up and do what is right.
