Good place to start...

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Austin, TX

Prosgood co-workers, on-site doctor and gym, CEO and founder still at helm

Conspoor pay structure, consensus-driven decision making,promotions too entrenched in social circles/playing politics, middle-management sucks, limited/slow growth opportunities

Advice to Senior Managementconsider trimming the fat - lots of inefficiency hiding in the middle layers of the company,...makes growth for true innovators difficult as promotions/ideas are controlled and people are forced to under perform to keep their jobs

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

At 5200+ employees, it's not a small company anymore, and as… Advice to Senior Management: Stop pretending to be a small company, and stop using the "company culture" to justify paying… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
