Pros

I was in a great group that drove enterprise finance support for the company. We had a lot of synergy and were recognized as subject matter experts in our roles. My manager was demanding but also collaborative and supportive.

Cons

Shame that so many good people who worked hard were impacted by such a short-sighted risk management strategy.

    Career development Training opportunities Fair Recognition and Rewards

    Once you are good in a field they were not encouraging or supportive of switching. Techies were discouraged from going into management for example.

    Pros

    Focus on work-life balance Young company, with most employees in the 18-45 age range Good benefits Frequent 1:1 meetings with management Lots of communication

    Cons

    Performance reviews and expectations not in line with those advertized. Performance reviews were changed so that the vast majority of employees received a "3" out of 5, which meant doing your job well, but not enough for even a cost of living raise. Salaries for employees varied widely and sometimes had jumps of up to 50% of base salaries. Salaries are not in line with corporate standards for areas with higher cost of living. Frequent micromanagement No margin for any error, which was, of course impossible, even 97% was not good enough.
