Current Employee - Sales  in  San Antonio, TX
Current Employee - Sales in San Antonio, TX

Pros

Fun people, fun concept, fun vision, great sense of teams at almost every turn

Cons

Smoke and mirrors, poorly trained/experienced leadership, low priority placed on employee training/development compared to "big boy" companies. Lots of talk about culture from talking heads. It gets real after about 90 days and most people realize the joke is on them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sell this thing to someone who can handle it. Hint: It's not Taylor Rhodes and Graham Weston.

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    Former Employee - Data Center Operations Technician  in  Ashburn, VA
    Former Employee - Data Center Operations Technician in Ashburn, VA

    Pros

    - Has plenty of bells and whistles and opportunities for growth.
    - Team outings every once in a while.

    Cons

    You may not feel like you are working for one of the best places to work if you are a data center technician. Also, the pay is under market value (very badly).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your DC Ops more. Stop hiring retail managers.
