    Pros

    Semi flexible work hours.

    Huge lack of communication, everyone is out only for themselves, ridiculous workload and lack of employees. Lack of ability to grow and move up. Boss wont listen to recommendations or use the skills your good at.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a few more people so we can get our jobs done.

    Pros

    Lack of structure creates ability to set own schedule, sometimes to a fault.

    Cons

    Shoot from the hip cowboy mentality. No priority set except for flavor (BIG! customer) of the day. Big decisions are done and reversed almost in parallel. Analytics rarely used for direction. Finance runs the company, ran mainly still as a CM mentality never investing into the future with development or IP. Always retreating back to traditional CM mentality. No inovativation, no investment to innovate.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure starting with the top. Business Segments and divisions given the same customer base and direction, internal competition creates overlap, not competitive edge. Confusion to the customer.

    Pros

    fast paced, overall great people

    Cons

    Start and stop projects. over hire, then lay off. HR leadership is disjointed and going backwards from where it once was great.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a true HR Leader, not an Ops guy. invest in ALL employees not just your senior executives.
