    Pros

    Good running equipment, free coffee, and popcorn on Thursday

    Cons

    Layoffs every 6 months even when there is work. Skeleton crew and mandatory overtime. No raises, no promotions and it's a horrible toxic environment. Work is being outsourced overseas. Management does not care about your career, just get the work done faster. If your Salary watch out, get ready for 60 hour weeks with no compensation for the extra hours .

    Advice to Management

    Go back to treating employees as humans, give raises.


  2. Co-workers good, company not so good
