    Pros

    lots of diversity of projects. lots of autonomy. great people and pace. can take on as much challenge as you want.

    Cons

    in general, it's all on the job training, so some managers are less good. also, el segundo was too far of a commute for me.

    Pros

    I came here with no experience out of college, and have been moved up quite a bit already. It's sad to read some of the other posts, because I think your experience really depends on which manager you have. I've been lucky to have a really good manager who is always looking out for me and how I can move up. I know it's not true for others.

    Cons

    Clearly not all managers are spending enough time advancing their people. No 401(k) match. I'm getting sick of eating at Trimana and Flame Broiler.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time training and developing your managers. Communicate with the whole company more often. We want to know what's going on with the company at a higher level.

    Pros

    My commute has been a breeze, I'm always able to get the time off I need. Ping pong table, and the view of the ocean from my side of the building is amazing. Many employees move between roles, with constant acquisitions there are always new opportunities.

    Cons

    Pay is definitely low. There is also a disconnect between the executives way of viewing the world (ie how they got to where they are) vs. what the path (and salary expectations) actually are.

    Advice to Management

    Accept that requiring a certain minimum tenure will cause you to miss out on great candidates. Low pay and no bonus structure is going to hurt employee retention.

    Pros

    - Coworkers were kind

    Cons

    - Was lied to about receiving benefits.
    - Was lied to about temporary status.
    - Was lied to about possibility of upward mobility.
    - Pay was awful
    - Was lied to about receiving overtime pay for worked holidays
    - Higher ups were lazy hypocrites who forced us to take on extravagant amounts of work. Yet did barely any themselves. I even had to correct their work on several occasions.

    Advice to Management

    Hire qualified upper management.
