    Pros

    if you like 40 % discounts on a pink dotted bean bag you definitely should join this company

    Cons

    disrespectful, arrogant and strongly über-self-opinionated senior co-workers and managers
    No room for growth, culture of secrecy, cronyisms and double standards, had been kept totally in the dark and being used as a Guiana pig.
    At one time my manager even backstabbed me by advising a co-work not to release certain information I was asking the co-worker for and I would have needed for my project.
    Blame culture, no team work but divide and conquer approach

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practise your advertised "People first" slogan

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
