    Pros

    Amazing co-workers, flexible hours, good company discounts, many nearby good place to eat.

    Cons

    Web development department is totally broken, clueless management, they are there just because they have been working for the company long time. No SDLC, stupid rules like you can't even eat a snack at your desk, dress code, no parking, overcrowded building, no employee engagement, you are treated like the lowest worker. Nothing to learn here, completely messed up.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourself!

    Pros

    Did some freelance copywriting. Flexible with good pay and cool staff. Product descriptions were easy to write.

    Cons

    No real training on what they're looking for in the copywriting department, so you have to hit the ground running.

    I have been working at LAMPS PLUS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work from home. Flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    Internet division is a dead end job with no room for movement, commission %'s different between sales reps who do the exact same job. They expect you to answer and help the many customer service calls that come in, but yet they do not compensate you for those type of calls which is a good majority of the calls you get per day. Inconsistent work schedule that will really mess with your internal clock. You can start in the morning one day, next day afternoon, next day evening hours.

    Advice to Management

    Recommendation is have some type of compensation for the many customer service calls during the hours the customer dept is closed. Not having equal commission compensation between sales reps brings low morale
