Current Employee - Web Developer  in  Atlanta, GA
Current Employee - Web Developer in Atlanta, GA

Pros

- Talented people
- Employees are great (excluding leadership)
- recognized and respected brand
- somewhat flexible

Cons

- Lack of real leadership
- Company politics dominate the business (decreasing stocks paint the picture)
- Lots of empty promises to employee with no growth
- Most competent individuals are usually always on the bottom of the totem pole and the most incompetent are the leaders and management
- Seen the company nose dive tremendously, mainly due to what majority of other reviews point out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in the individuals that created the brand (employees), if you don't wake up especially after this huge drop, you will lose the market share and lots of good people that drive the brand. Management doesn't needs to update their mentality and understand to plan for the future and not plan backwards

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO
