    Pros

    Young entrepreneurial culture, competitive pay and bonuses, work from home ok.

    Cons

    ZERO work life balance and NO respect for your private time. Expect calls & meetings into the late night and also expect you WILL work weekends! The CEO is a bit of a wacko and sends crazy emails and the management will drive you into the ground with long hours and lots of work. Horrible experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    The compensation and benefits at the company are pretty good. There are people who work here who are amazing and make it a good place to work. There are some career opportunities because of the size of the company.

    Cons

    So many changes have led to poor communication and very bad decisions. The continual hiring of people outside the company rather than looking to promote people inside the company has led to a significant culture change that is negative. Those who have been hired into leadership are out of touch with those who are doing the actual work. We have a lot of managers but not a lot of real leaders. People are disgruntled and dissatisfied.
    There is VERY little real training outside of the Sales team. The Leadership team talks about training constantly but will not invest ANY money in training or resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get dirty. Go talk to the people who are actually doing all the work, not those who are managing them and are feeding you the "corporate" cliches. Be concerned about your managers. So many new managers have little or no people experience are are doing a poor job of managing their staff. Decisions are being made in the best interests of the managers career not the best interest of the company. Put your money where your mouth is. Stop talking about training and then never delivering on good training programs. The customers are the ones suffering for lack of training, bad management decisions, and inefficiencies. Stop listening to people that you are hiring from other companies who know nothing about how this company works. Listen to those who have worked her and know the real truth about what is going on.
