    Don't take a promotion until you get your raise!

    Pros

    Company offers free Bagels on Wednesday
    Company offers free beer on Friday
    Partners provide generous employee discounts
    Employee referral bonus is high... if you can live with yourself for recommending this job to a friend.

    Cons

    Layoffs last year created an environment of distrust and dissatisfaction.
    Reorganization lead to increased demands on those left.
    Senior management promised raises and promotions to a large group leftover in exchange for taking on an increased workload (in my case- combining the job of 4 people into one) and did not follow through.
    Reviews are subjective and do not show the true value of an employee. You are more harshly reprimanded for interacting with coworkers than you are rated on the merit of your work.
    Dissatisfaction throughout the organization causes workers to be nasty backstabbers.
    There is no reason to work harder than necessary at this company because chances are the person next to you is on Facebook all day making more money than you do and being recommended for a raise.
    The new corporate raise policy excludes all employees from a yearly COLA and instead highly rewards employees with promotions and raises for which they are not qualified.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house- get rid of the dead weight. There are too many people draining on the department that do not contribute but won't be assessed. They demoralize the rest of the people who work as hard as possible to make up for the lack of effort. Enforce policies and offer guidance and mentoring. If you're not going to do that- there is no point in subjectively providing negative feedback since you're not encouraging change.

    True Action is a fine place to work but does not excel in any particular area.

    Pros

    True Action is a good place to work because of the brands that you are exposed to and the scale of the projects that the company engages in. If you possess enough patience and initiative there is opportunity for career advancement.

    Cons

    There is a real lack of leadership and communication within the organization from an executive level. Additionally, some of the decisions made by this team are baffling, or at least come off this way due to the lack of communication. Finally, the overall compensation package for employees is poor to adequate.
