I still have nightmares.

Software Consultant (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsTheir salary was reasonably competitive.

ConsIn my experience, the company was packed with young, arrogant, impatient know-it-alls. Coupled with the fact that I had a monster of a manager who seemed to have lost her carrot, and only had a stick at her disposal. My coworkers had a look of terror and fear at all times and she seemed to love it ... she was proud of herself for it. It was in some confusing way to me an accomplishment to her, where I thought it demonstrated her inability be be a manager on a daily basis.

I hated working for the company, it gave me nightmares (literally), and I actually developed a fear of flying from it. It was really hard to fit in, and some of their workers were really meanspirited. I think it is because they lack the talent to be truly brilliant, and it was their way of venting.
