    Pros

    Lots of projects, lots of opportunities to learn new technologies and process.

    Cons

    compensation and benefits are ok. Too much internal politics and not enough attention payed to people doing the work. Treats everyone like a commodity.

    Advice to Management

    Better profit sharing, need better understanding of company's value preposition. The company is in transition phase with mergers and acquisition so too much chaos and clients see the chaos.

    Pros

    Not a very demanding job, everybody leaves at 5pm.

    Cons

    No engineering culture. It is a boys club. People talk about going to strip clubs or say the most offensive things during lunch conversations. There is no system in place that you can depend on, management got promoted because every other manager left. To be fare, this is the culture in San Francisco, which was acquired by Epsilon. On the other hand, Epsilon did not manage it well either.

    Advice to Management

    There is so much to improve.

    Pros

    Lots of project variety, with some good accounts. Always treated fairly in dealings across the board

    Cons

    Benefits were sub-optimal post-acquistion compared to competing companies in San Francisco. This led to some employee dissatisfaction

    Advice to Management

    Benchmark against other bay area companies that you are competing with.

    Pros

    The larger mothership of Epsilon acquired our small boutique shop SolutionSet here in San Francisco last year. Has more of a stable presence now. There are opportunities to move into other accounts.

    Cons

    Due to the high turnover rates, the people moving into management positions have very little training new management titles and more responsibilities with no adherence to the pay structure. The flexible schedule is non-existent, like it had been before.

    Advice to Management

    Start over

    Pros

    Great people. Great location (if you're in San Francisco). Decent Benefits. Decent Salary

    Cons

    This job can be a stepping stone, and possible a long term. Only downside is increasing in salary and lack of more challenging opportunities. Opportunities to grow and learn more. Incentives and perks to attract more talent.

    Advice to Management

    Talent is key. Question is, how do we get it. We are facing an ever changing tech world and only attract great talent can we stay up to speed. Not only attracting great talent, but also building current staff to be up to speed. Providing resources and invest so that the current staff is happy and will produce more.

    Pros

    Some inspiring and passionate people to work with and learn from. Compensation is decent but leaves you tied to the job. A short-term opportunity to add highlights to the résumé. The size of the business allows you to make an impact no matter what your position is.

    Cons

    In an environment where everyone is trying to get out and the new people on-boarded are wondering when they can get out, one can only wonder how far you would go for a job. Little room for advancement after a certain period, i.e. dead end. Top heavy with upper management all making executive decisions, the bucket for talent is slowly leaking. Decisions are not geared toward long-term growth or retention. Average employment span of 1 year Corporate atmosphere

    Advice to Management

    Don't make hasty decisions. Yes, the company is continually changing and the pace is rapid, but be a little more grounded in reality.

    Pros

    Lots of varied work across very different size clients. Good mix of UX, design, and development. Most employees are very supportive and helpful. Those that aren't are fired quickly.

    Cons

    After acquisition by alliance data, environment started becoming more bureaucratic. Tend to treat employees as purely resources. Not a strong culture. Varied management quality.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in good employees (training, off-sites, etc). Would reduce turnover.
