    Pros

    Great hours, good work-life balance, the people make the job.

    Cons

    No room for growth within the company. You have to leave to advance in your career.

    Advice to Management

    You're training great people and then giving them to other companies because there's nowhere for them to go within Katz. Work harder to keep your good employees.

    Underpaid for the workload. Work is stressful.

    Pros

    There are some great people here and it is very laid back. The office location is great. Most of the managers are nice to work for.

    Cons

    The job is mindless and the atmosphere is very unprofessional. Everyone walks around looking burned out and zombie like because they pretty much don't like their jobs. Lately, turn around has been up the charts with many people leaving and the rest are looking to leave. If management treated their employees better then maybe they would see morale raise up. They took away Holiday parties & fun events. There is no "perk" to working at Katz. Seems like a big concern on everyone's mind is drinking. Long lunches at bars, after hour partying and coming into work with a hang over is the norm. It seems the way to get "in" is to be a part of these after hour and lunch hour drink parties that occur. Seeing all of this from the inside is a huge turn off and adds to the very unprofessional atmosphere of this place.. The pay... well, it is pretty terrible. There is so much more out there and I don't understand how management doesn't realize that. Other companies in the same field for the same position are paying a good 10k more. With all the money this company has they don't do a very good job at showing their employees they're appreciated. Apparently there are no pay raises unless you move to a higher position or ... ;) Everyone is extremely over worked. The workload has become unbearable and no one seems to do anything about it. Some people don't even do their work and others have to pick up the slack. Do yourself a favor and stay away. Look into other companies that will pay their employees what they're WORTH and will show respect.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. After so much negative feedback, you'd think they would get the picture and change the way they treat people, pay people, and run the company. You need to take a moment to realize how everyone is heading out the door. You are slowly losing many of your most creative, hardworking, and enthusiastic employees who have much to offer to the company if given a chance.
