Slow promotions and even slower raises. Bonuses suck.

Technology (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

ProsThe people here are great to work with and there is always work to do so sitting around is not an option.

ConsSenior leadership needs to worry less about suing other companies and more about being profitable. People getting promoted solely for sucking up yet being completely inept at any type of leadership.

Advice to Senior ManagementFire yourselves and take a 1010 course on management.
