Advice to ManagementAdvice

Smile more. Don't look so hurried and surly and into your iPhones and blackberries all the time. It creates a culture of fear to voice an opinion and be yourself.

    Pros

    Very cool industry, free tickets (except to the more popular events) if you are client facing, some very cool coworkers / managers, pier support, very stable company, good benefits, flexible schedule (when they need it, but when you need it too), very casual dress code.

    Cons

    Very low salaries for field employees are a company culture that’s been there forever through the many ownership changes and it doesn't look like it will go away, completely overworked employees, lots of frustrated employees that are either grumpy or mistreating coworkers, you are always on call (officially or unofficially, but you are receiving company emails 24/7 and are expected to reply immediately several times), poor communication, they have released so many different versions of every product (and none of them work acceptably) that there is A LOT of confusion in the field, field employee input is ignored, field employees only support the little that they can and pass on the rest to remote groups with which they have to constantly struggle, no place for creativity or hands-on work, snake pit with tons of people trying to save their behinds by blaming others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop wasting money in programs and propaganda to boost employee morale. The best way to boost employee morale is to compensate them adequately and to hire enough people so that your workers don't have to work 12 hours per day.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
