Okay pay, but no growth for serious career long employment, dead end job

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsSome great talent behind the wall of lynda.com, and they use to give us free food. They provide a clean campus near the beach, and they have pretty nice facilities.

ConsThat talent is wasted behind those walls, restrictions and greed weigh heavy on every single decision from legal to hospitality. Management is based on friendships and a lazy attempt to refill positions, seriously, even with terrible reviews they keep their managers in place. Make sure to drink and party with your manger to stay on top.

Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of watching out for yourself walk as a true leader and lead with love and compassion...be an example not a coward. And for the love of God stop partying with your employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
