    Good place for early career experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood place for early career experience but probably not great beyond 2 years. You'll learn some basics about business and market modeling which is useful.

    ConsLow pay, lots of cold calling and sometimes a little shady tactics to get information.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIdentify your stars sooner and make sure they're compensated well.

    learning lesson

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSome coworkers and a true learning experience if you end up in the "right" team and role.

    ConsThe company creates a great deal of BS processes that tie up employee time and aren't productive even if there are solid intentions behind them. Good employees are often not retained, leaving for better pay and opportunities to advance. Promotions are overlooked for years and career tracks often sidelined. Comp plans given for a current calendar year typically half or 3/4 a way into the year instead of 1/1 or before then for upcoming year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your good employees better- value them. You would get more out of your employees and keep the good ones, not just the complacent.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
