    Pros

    Learning experience, career growth opportunity, work for a market leader, enjoy the benefits while they last. Amazing co-workers who will leave a lasting impression on you - friends for life.

    Cons

    Poor decisions from leadership end up making every employee suffer. Attention deficit disorder from the top distracts everyone. Open workspace environment leaves you unable to concentrate without bringing in headphones (seriously what is the point of open workspaces - cubicle walls are so amazing). Open environment also leads to your witnessing employees being reprimanded or fired without the company exercising discretion. Extreme working hours - you are expected to answer your emails nightly and on the weekends - get ready to rudely bring your cell phone to dinner, and your signìficant other and family will no longer recognise your face without a strange white glow reflecting off of it. Simply awful - no one should have to endure this. Company is now reducing benefits due to upper management not understanding how to use the internet or how to run an internet company and making weird or unbelievable decisions. CEO appears to have favorites but really he doesn't give a crap about people and their wellbeing. Lots of blame/departmental fighting and IT seems to get the brunt of it (they are severely understaffed).

    Advice to Management

    Why don't you call if it's an emergency? Work out a system to call people instead of expecting people to log in and check email - it's unreasonable to send an email at 3AM and think someone should respond immediately. Employees should be able to rest up when they leave the office. Invest in technology and improve all systems that employees need to support.

    Pros

    There is nothing beneficial about working for this company unless you are one of the CEO's favorite puppets

    Cons

    No trust and senior management doesn't know what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites and blaming all the other good employees for your bad decisions.
