Stax Inc. is a glorified telemarketing research firm... I hope you like annoying people!

Pros

Good pay if you work on an hourly basis. You can negotiate your starting hourly rate. They start at $20/hour for unqualified people and go up to about $80 an hour. (Don't settle for $20)

Cons

Your really a telemarketer if you are not full-time. Not a lot of thinking required and very boring. Managers are not really intelligent beings.

Advice to Management

Restructure your business and hire smart and talented people.

    Pros

    You get some space at the company; they expect you to fully be on top of your workload, so you do not have someone looking over your shoulder or interfering with your projects often.

    Very friendly, smaller offices and company at large.

    Cons

    Extremely political climate, where the stereotype of 'It's not what you know, but who you know" fits.

    Advice to Management

    Take input from down the ladder a more seriously - management can be wrong at times too.

    I worked at Stax, Inc.

    Pros

    Small organization, good location, potentially interesting client engagements. Many friendly individuals. You'll learn a lot.

    Cons

    Benefits are terrible. Face time is critical. Sometimes very political culture. Training and development, when I was there, was sorely lacking. Management rarely if ever took the time to mentor people lower down on the ladder. I tried, but then there are too many politics, so mentoring becomes difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Be less secretive. Don't behave as though the firm is in the business of saving Earth from certain doom.
