Pros

Greater than average diversity. Uniqueness is respected. Flexible working hours and rules. A liberal atmosphere. Comraderie among staff. There is plenty of work to do.

Cons

Layoffs. Twelve hour work days. Uncertainty about the future of the company. Fires to put out everywhere. High attrition rate. This year, bonuses were not given, and raises were given only to a select few.

Advice to Management

Give bonuses and raises next year. We have been working hard, and we deserve to be compensated. Invest more in developing junior staff. Don't just toss them into the lake and expect them to swim.

    Pros

    Career development and easy access to senior management

    Cons

    Very inefficient management. The pay is not competitive and pay raises are scarce. Just recently downsized

    Advice to Management

    Invest more money in finding the right talent to run a tight ship-qualified professionals who will work for the right money; eliminate wasteful spending on overpriced consultants that do a poor job, and greedy MGA's that do not produce enough business.

  2. Long hours and no career plan plus, as a woman, got paid less than men in the same position.

    Pros

    Lots of fun people to work around, laid back environment. You can learn a lot because of the multi tasking involved.

    Cons

    Long hours, heavy workload not matched with the salary received, no career plan of any kind or investment in meaningful employee's training, salary below market (considering companies with same activity/scope of services)

    Advice to Management

    Invest on employees, work on better salary schemes, base promotions on performance not time in the company, work on a better benefits program
