This is a terrible company. They absolutely don't care about their employees.

Pros

There are not very many pros to working here

Cons

The benefits are terrible and the very senior leaders don't want to do anything to fix it. There is no sick time, you have to work 6 months before you accrue any vacation, and then you only get 10 days. Health insurance is really expensive. No work life balance- you're expected to work from 7- 7. Managers have no leadership skills.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire some more decent leaders and get rid of the ones who don't get it.

    Pros

    Employees have fun and work hard. Pranks are common (like filling the boss' office with balloons). Bring your dog to work day each week. Fitness center reimbursement, great benefits. Employees select the music. Management listens to and encourages everyone's opinions, suggestions, and ideas.

    Cons

    High learning curve, new people are often "new" for a long time because of the depth and range of knowledge they need to acquire while learning their job. Training is provided, but it's still a high learning curve. Typical office: cubicles and lack of sunlight.

    STAY AWAY - This comapny's ethics are deplorable - even AFTER the executive management change!

    Pros

    Salary - This company pays some of the best salaries in the region. By far the cons do outweigh even this benefit.

    Cons

    The new management (installed in 2011) is terrible to employees and will terminate them on a whim.
    Stay away from this company if you have any sort of ethics.
    Most employees there are afraid to take any risk due to management's heavy hand when it comes to mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company - you really have no idea how to treat employees. It's the people that work there that will make or break your company and you have done everything possible to make them hate you.
