ProsCoworkers are awesome.
You get to sit in the cars.
You get free coffee and cereal.

ConsLack of communication between upper management and subordinates.
No praise for a job well done.
Expected to work weekends no matter what.
Fridays mean absolutely nothing because you don't get a break.
Be prepared to answer emails throughout the night (sometimes even at 2am).
People are always quitting.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees better. Communicate with us and show us that we're doing a good job. Give us a break once in a while.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
