Pros

Small company feel with plenty of employee activities.
Decent base pay structure.
Good medical benefits, flexible work hours & personal time.

Cons

Company lacked a good management structure & professionalism.
Very conservative in paying commission and there's no match on 401K.
Company has a feel of having a High School "in crowd" at the upper management level.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Company has grown in size to the point of adding professional outside upper management vs. the home grown staff now in place to reach the next level of expansion.

Doesn't Recommend
Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Nice work environment, co-workers are very friendly and helpful, growth and other job opportunities are not abundant but available. They also give quarterly bonuses (depending on the job) and they give monthly bonuses if sales goals are met. Overall, nice place to work.

    Cons

    There aren't many bad things I can think of. Sometimes upper management delays things like bonuses and employee reviews, but just stay on top of it and it will get done.

    Pros

    Parking lot, casual atmosphere (jeans and gym shoes allowed every day, some people even show up in sweats or PJs). Made a friend or two.

    Cons

    Serious gossip, lazy managers, nepotism, lack of creativity, people in managerial positions can do and undo without being questioned, micromanagement, pay inequality. Very unfriendly coworkers (HR included). Worst place I ever worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to the bottom of situations instead of letting incompetent managers make big decisions that can hurt employees/the company. Stop the nepotism. If someone is bringing a family member or friend into the company, make sure that it is done in a fair and legal way.
