Pros

Generally, the compensation package is very good, including some unique benefits. Many of the facilities are quite nice and, in general, their policies look good on paper. Most of the day to day services are provided in a very timely manner.

Cons

The culture is very unusual and they fire people at the drop of a hat. When you interview they'll tell you they have a very low turnover rate. But in the first year I worked there, over 20 people were let go. After I left, a bunch of the developers were laid off too. It seems to be one of two things. Either you fit in and you'll be very happy there or you won't fit in and you'll be out of job pretty quickly. Also, the management doesn't seem to have ever taken any professional development.

Advice to Management

Don't take people's jobs so lightly. Make more allowances for different personality types. Value diversity, don't fire people for it. And get all of the managers some management training.

    Pros

    The culture is very open and employees are very empowered; excellent benefits including generous time off, a great work/life balance, and unbelievable facilities; the company has great integrity and genuinely cares about customers

    Cons

    Being a smaller company, opportunities for advancement are limited and other than a few telecommuters, US-based employees must work at the headquarters
