Flexible hours, but oppressive management structure.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Oakland, CA

ProsI was able to make my own schedules, and as long as I was 100% billable, nobody bothered me.

ConsI had to take on projects and tasks that weren't really my role in order to stay billable. I never had an issue with billability, but I saw my coworkers suffer. They were often forced to take furlough days or pay cuts or reduce hours in order to make Senior Management happy. It resulted in extremely high turnover.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop treating your employees like they are a cog in the wheel.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
