    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.

  2. Responsibility. Growth. Making an Impact.

    Pros

    Reading other reviews, hate to journey down a path well-trodden, but the growth opportunities are here.

    A lot of trust from management. Nice to be in such a fast paced environment and feel empowered to make the business my own.

    Ton of responsibility. Can feel overwhelming at times, but ultimately it's why I'm here.

    Winning. You get a lot of wins here. Setting up projects, seeing them through, and seeing that made an impact.

    Cons

    Management could be better at setting more defined goals.

    Agree that Trimana can get old real fast. Also, the Coffee Bean downstairs can be a money pit.

    Advice to Management

    Set goals. Provide training. Continue to empower.

    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.
