Pros

For individuals willing to take the initiative to do their jobs well, and look at how they can improve their jobs from day to day this is a great company to be. They are open to new ideas and trying new things that bring value to the organization and customers.

Cons

There's always so much going on that it is sometimes hard to focus on projects.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to keep an open mind and the flexibility and culture that sets you apart from other companies.

    Pros

    If you're looking for a fast paced work environment where everyday is new, this is the place. Creativity and a "We Can" attitude is encouraged so you can make your job what you want. I've never seen a company so customer focused.

    Cons

    Because it's so fast paced it's easy to feel behind. Also, since the company is growing so fast it can feel like the infrastructure isn't keeping up. The "We Can" attitude often doesn't translate to "We Won't" when the situation/need arises so wasted resources can go after bad opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan ahead for the companies outlook and try to get ahead of the growth curve to keep employee and customer fulfillment high.

    Pros

    There are few pros to working there but here are a few. They are growing, primarily through acquisition. The HQ building has a gym and the shower is incredible because the former owner had put it in. Outside of leadership, there are some terrific people there doing great things daily while serving the tyrant at the top.

    Cons

    They preach values but everything they do lacks values. They write employee agreements which they do not live up to and use an employee long enough to get something out of them before discarding them. Turnover is extremely high and morale extremely low. Nothing gets done without being micro-managed by the top, nothing...except when they are to be held accountable then they are nowhere to be found. Sales force pay was adjusted without notice and the C-suite was nowhere to be found when questions came in from the field, the admin responsible for putting in the data was left to give answers. If you are not a 'yes' person, this is not an environment you will enjoy as those that stay any length of time survive by saying yes regardless of knowing the decision is wrong. Doing what so-called leadership wants is more important than doing the right thing, always. Those with power will do anything to protect that power and as soon as that power is threatened your days are numbered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand up for what is right and actually read/live out the values you preach. Nothing will change without changes at the top, it must start there. Bullying to get your way went out of style like 30 years ago...
