    Pros

    The friendly helpful people in the company that work as a company. The original Riverside mentality.

    Cons

    New management changed things and made it where we have separate departments for things we used to do in one and the communication is lost and no one has a clear handle of the new process therefore causing more problems and unnecessary stress. The pay is based on who you know and not what you know. I bring a lot of talent and expertise however am not paid fairly and have complained I get the usual BS and you get the same lie that "you make more than the average joe". Then I decided to present some findings that were left at the copy machine and found that my male Caucasian co worker with the same title and who took my old job makes 162% more than I make and my predecessor makes 183% more - why is that right. Because I am a female.

  3. Very rewarding

    Pros

    Easy to hide and stay under the radar; once accepted you can spend decades doing very little.

    Cons

    It's a bunch of ex-principals, ex-psychologists, ex-teachers and ex-counselors pretending to be forward thinking technology innovators....filing for bankruptcy seems just about right!

    Advice to Management

    Pretend you care a bit more; everyone is in a mode or protecting their current position and willing to do very little positive.
