Pros

Opportunity to work in client facing role in social media

Cons

Typical start-up environment (no structure, no direction, bad mgmt, no inventive to succeed, gossip)
Management and HR department are nonexistent and not qualified
Billing department nonexistent and unreliable - (CHECK EVERY PAYCHECK)
Management/ Sales team lie to clients with responsibility falling on lower level employees
Owner hires friends who are not qualified
Be prepared to be berated, yelled at, and then expected to work hard
Absolutely no trust in employees
Owner will lie about company events and opportunities that never happen
Only 3 of the 12 employees have been with the company over a year (All of them are friends)
No direction or incentives based on performance
Absolutely no sense of direction for the company
Full of secrets and gossip
VERY high turnover rate

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Tell the truth, don't hire your high school friends, and focus on employee morale
Stop lying to clients, be open to criticism, making empty promises to employees
Pay college graduates what they deserve to be paid
Horrible insurance benefits and work/life balance
