Pros

-easy to get in without much technical skill (little technical interview or none even) -can still be around without any technical skill provided that one is good at manipulating or Strategist long time off to offload hard task to other

Cons

about 75% is a contractor and one will get in there as a contractor to get offloaded easily. Thus, long time off can be taken at one's own salary. even full time employee has to punch time card not not more than 40 hr while working well past over 40 hr. (why bother time card to begin with then?) the ridiculous security restraint for IT equipment and work place is like Orwellian 1984 and not an encouraging place for free and creative people (thus most of their work produce in house has such a horrible UI, and the management take pride in these poor design since it comes from them who do not have any aesthetic taste!)

Advice to Management

Don't think that "google is the best partner and the worst enemy". Leave out the "worst enemy" part with the kind of attitude toward your creative workforce, an uninviting Orwellian 1984 work place, poor recruitment, you can never compete with google to call them worst enemy.

    Pros

    It is a good stepping stone/learning experience as far as gaining knowledge and insight into retail and customer service based employment.

    Cons

    There is a definite kink in the chain of command.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees

    Pros

    Once you are in the door, the future of your career is in your own hands. There are mulitple avenues of opportunity and the tuition reimbursement program and several onsite universities can help to propel anyone with a positive attitude forward.

    Cons

    In more cases than not, you must be flexible to relocation in order to advance within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to look outward for best practices to keep employee moral moving upward.
