Pros

The company provides very good training classes and a business casual dress code on most days. You can learn a lot working for this company. The company has a philanthropy program called "Situs Cares," which is very active.

Cons

Late nights and weekends are the norm. Don't expect to receive positive feedback about your work product even if it is great. The company seems to have a policy against positive feedback. The firm is very "corporate" with a "stuffy" culture. They do not sway from the "policy" and employee work/life balance is a foreign concept. Management doesn't seem to be on the same page, which causes confusion. Management often underestimates the manpower necessary to complete a project. Be prepared to work with a lot of contractors. The firm discontinued its 401(K) matching program.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be open to providing employees with encouragement and positive feedback. This will result in more consistent positive performance.

    Pros

    In theory lots of time off.

    Cons

    In reality....expect some upper management buffoon to call you every second of your vacation to make you work. Executives are likely to smile to your face, pat you on the back praise you....than walk into the next room and tell everyone your are worthless and demand you be fired. It's that bad. The CEO is excellent....at scratching his own back and fulfilling his aspirations on the backs of the lowly employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You talk about the importance of your employees you might want to actually walk that walk.

    Pros

    Smart, nice coworkers, with decent benefits.

    Cons

    For a company with so much potential, most of Senior Management and HR are unprofessional. They lie, cheat and stab each other in the back using staff as collateral damage. Most workers are underpaid, disrespected and pigeon-holed into a role. Routinely senior management discusses sensitive matters out in the open (who's getting fired today, who sucks, etc). It's a circus and just begging for the labor department to come in and clean house.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house from the top down--seriously. Treat your employees with respect and dignity (as you claim so many times on your careers page) and pay them fairly. Don't dangle magical carrots in front of them--THEY AREN"T HORSES.
