Pros

Best Reasons include well stock fridge and snacks. You can wear whatever you'd like to work to a certain extent. Clock in at 9 clock out at 6. No overtime. Banging Holiday Party. Good benefits.

Cons

Not really a place where you can grow. You can be one of the most intelligent people but the company will never recognize that. People rewarded based on how long they have been at the company not on individual skill or merit. Mangers follow under this same guideline and don't posses the skills any experienced manager would. You hear more from gossip about the company then managers presenting you with information of what is going on.

Advice to Management

Communication. Give your employees something to work towards.

    Pros

    Great Co-workers Casual Environment Challenging but well-defined goals VP-Level leadership that really knows their stuff Great perks - game room, unlimited vacation, etc.

    Cons

    Communication from the top down could be more regular and more timely in its delivery. Sometimes messaging about what's going on in the company is too little, too late.

    Advice to Management

    Three words: transparency, transparency, transparency. The staff levels through Director and even VP communicate really well, but there seems to be a disconnect at times between the executive team and the line leadership. Opening up those lines of communication would go a long way toward making a great place to work even better.
