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
