Pros

Co-workers are nice to work with. Casual dress is accepted. Flexible hours.

Cons

No promotions. Extra education won't make a difference to your salary or your position. Some folks have Masters degrees and do menial work. They say they look for people of integrity but they ignore work records and fire people a week before Christmas. The management is not interested in career development, and unless you are in marketing, sales, or editorial you are routinely ignored and your work is taken for granted. Most people are fearful of losing their jobs so they usually don't speak up to moments of injustice. Human Resources cares nothing about employees they only follow the company motto for lower employees, but management gets carte blanche to make their own rules. They don't care about your personal difficulties before they fire you. Very little compassion.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the people who work for you. Create an environment where people feel comfortable no matter the department. Pay people what they're worth. Don't be dismissive of employees' skills.
