Pros

-Really smart, motivated, and reliable team members
-Great salary
-You'll learn a lot from the people you work with
-Fantastic product

Cons

-Senior management makes decisions without checking in with the SME's within the company.
-People get fired much faster without much warning. If you have a good manager, you will be happy to have the people who aren't pulling their weight gone quickly without causing too many problems.
-It's hard to leave the office during the day, if needed. There is a big focus on face time.

Advice to Management

-Before implementing an idea, check with your highly compensated SME's.
-Make sure you are listening to and keeping a pulse on your customers.
-Give employees more trust so that the high performers don't constantly feel like they could be fired for any small mistake. This kind of fear leads to a nervous, management pleasing environment.

    Pros

    24 hours a day available for setting schedule. I was paid very well through the temp agency and then was given a good raise after I was hired on. There was also a lot of windows and a cheery looking appearance.

    Cons

    Constant changes in team organization and fear filled environment. There were mental health hotline tear aways in the bathrooms. It wasn't an easy place to work because management constantly hounded you if you made a single mistake.
