    Collaborative work environment on exciting projects

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsInteresting projects coming in with more of a consulting angle. Collaborative work environment is great when you are starting out.

    ConsExpect potentially long hours in kind of an unexpected manner. Project deadlines dictate whether or not you can maintain a flexible schedule.

    A decent place to work but management really needs to listen to its employees

    Senior Development Manager (Current Employee) Costa Mesa, CA

    ProsGood work life balance, great office culture and great hardworking people to work with.

    ConsNo personal growth, no perks, compensation is on the low end. Company is moving all development offshore and has no plan in place to do this. Product management in the UK is so disconnected with the development in the US. There is no accountability in any of the teams. Too many contractors and not many employees, huge risk.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the employees. Allow for more training for employees. Pay market salaries.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The worst job I ever had

    Consumer Associate II (Former Employee) Allen, TX

    ProsThere are none. It is a terrible place to work

    Consinept Team Managers. Pay is terrible. They will hire anyone due to the revolving door, no one stays very long.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay a decent wage, you will get better quality staff. Consider advancing Manager's that actually have had some of management training.

    Good place to work

    Sales (Former Employee) Schaumburg, IL

    ProsGood company. Great location. Professional staff. Excellent benefits. There is room for moving up in the company, just have to kiss the right tush.

    ConsRevolving door. Job security can be an issue, even for great employees. Culture is a bit loopy at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop the hire/lay off cycle. It creates paranoia among employees and leads to decreased productivity. Have some faith in your employees and invest in them.

    It could be worse.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsDecent pay & benefits plan; pretty casual dress code; somewhat flexible schedule; family-like environment

    ConsMundane work; current hiring freeze places more work the remaining individuals; quite often, there's too much work, and too little resources
