    Pros

    health and vision benefits, gym membership reimbursement (if you ever find time to get to a gym), other benefits

    Cons

    office politics, you won't go anywhere if you're a woman, long hours, very low pay, senior managers take credit for other people's work and get credit and promotions based on that while the person who is doing all of the work gets no raise or recognition and works longer hours, most "lower level" employees are treated poorly

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to make people work 60+ hour weeks, you should pay them more and show them some respect. If you're going to give bonuses, either give them to everyone in the company or no one. Senior management doesn't deserve bonuses for the hard work that their teams do, considering their teams make dirt pay.

    its not "where health meets green" nor is it a place where you'll "live your whole life"

    Pros

    Talented and genuinely nice people to work with, health insurance, yoga classes, tuition reimbursement towards a degree. the company has great opportunities.

    Cons

    Unnecessary micromanaging tactics practiced by inexperienced senior level employees (managers) in their attempts to lead teams and complete projects, which only results in inefficiencies. Managers determine when you're done for the day - goof luck "living your whole life". Hypocrisy, bureaucracy, and non stop office politics. Extremely hard to get a promotion or a raise. Not the best company to work for if you are a technologically advanced person. Currently, its about quantity rather than quality.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate to and with your employees on the level where they can feel respected, appreciated and that you are on their side. Better yet, hire managers that are actually capable of leading.
