    Pros

    Good to work on meaningful projects that affects a lot of people. Get to see how investigation in the real world works

    Cons

    None that i can think of relatively young company not as established as the bigger players in the market. however i would not hold that against them as I think its just a matter of time before more people learn about this company.

    Advice to Management

    expand to more cities that will allow for more increased work

    Pros

    -Young environment
    -Personal rewards such as gift cards and company outings
    -Input from employees strongly encouraged by management
    -Modern office style
    -Interesting line of work

    Cons

    -Very low pay
    -Extremely demanding job that is worth more compensation than what is given
    -Very poor communication
    -Overtime pay based on 80 hours as opposed to 40
    -Job title promotions without pay raises of any sort
    -At first, micromanagement was slim to none but became visibly evident as time went on

    Advice to Management

    I highly encourage better communication within the company. The communication is some of the worst I have ever seen. I also encourage more information being distributed to staff from upper management as opposed to an intern. I would also encourage more honesty/transparency when it comes to what is going on with the company in terms of retention of the main client. I would also encourage a raise in pay, even if it is minor, to those who advance in the company in terms of hierarchy.
