Worst mistake I ever made.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsNear public transportation (Metro). Caters to recent grads who desperately need a job. Other potential future employers are in the same building.

ConsThe issues I would have raised have already been quite excellently and thoroughly covered in the majority of these posts: the micro-managing, unprofessionalism of senior staff, favoritism, back-stabbing, spying, denigration of employees through firm-wide emails, lack of mentoring, lack of team cohesion, strange accounting of hours, hostile work atmosphere, lack of real career growth, and the lack of a real work-home balance...all are what you get when you sign up to work here.

If I had read these reviews before I was given an offer, I would be just reading and taking heed of them instead of (unfortunately) writing one.

Advice to Senior ManagementGiven that 3 years' worth of prior posts have given plenty of advice to senior management that seems to have fallen on deaf ears, it makes no sense to continue trying to advise them here.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
