    I have been working at SDL full-time

    Pros

    Because of the stressful environment, those that do stick around tend to be pretty awesome people!!

    Cons

    Incredibly bad "management vs. employee" communication
    Expecatation are abnormally high - very demanding / stressful.
    Revolving door of old/new employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN to your employee complaints!
    You get what you give, and it shows by the extremely high turnaround!!!
    Stop being so greedy with your money, if you're doing so well, how come our increases are so LOW!!??
