    Pros

    Part time, project based work. Allows flexible schedule and some work from home. Good training and materials to use.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of the business there isn't a steady flow of work. There are busy times and very slow times. But I was well aware of this before taking the job.

    Pros

    My coworkers were pretty great, and my boss was exceptional.

    Cons

    I was new in my career and wanted to specialize in sales or marketing. I transitioned from a temporary position to a full-time hire, and while it was going well, there was no opportunity for advancement. This is ultimately why I left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create opportunities for advancement for the younger staff on your teams.

    Mostly consulting work - you cannot count of FT regular pay. As a consultant this will need to be one source of income, not you're only source.

    Pros

    coworkers are nice and hard-worker (exclude Director/VPs)

    Cons

    -Office politics
    -No company culture
    -Management does the same thing over and over and doesn't try to fix things when there are issues
    -Management like to blame their subordinates even though it is their lack of management skill that cause the situtation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR need to train their managers. Manager need to look at themselves and fix themselves. Company need to provide more training especially cross-training.
