    Pros

    Loved the people I worked with and the culture, they made the entire experience an incredible one. I'm still friends with folks who still work there.

    Cons

    As a startup, the directive from the Mothership wasn't always clear. I wish that it was a bit more communicative and clear, but their support in our efforts was only half met.

    Pros

    Company is re-defining itself...very open to people expressing their opinions and personally driving change.

    Cons

    Little to no clear direction from Senior Management in terms of priorities. The company is all over the place in trying to become everything for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Focus

    Pros

    -Good business model, will be around for a while -looks good on a resume

    Cons

    -no career advancement -hr people are just benefit managers, focus is hiring externally -pay is average -VERY political, if you aren't in the right group your performance is irrelevant -hr has an attitude that employees should consider themselves lucky to work here

    Advice to Management

    The business model won't protect the company forever, eventually someone will disrupt it and you will need to run the company like a real business

    Pros

    The future, after 5-8 years, then more of the dead wood is gone; CEO has great promise but style may be stifling open conversation and decisions based on facts

    Cons

    Senior managers are waiting for retirement, don't care to advance business or manage their staff, they either try to do as little as possible or spend their time creating crises or complex projects that don't make sense; HR is useless, keep incompetent managers, ignore talent under their noses, focus too much on outside talent, they just manage benefits

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of 18+ year management...they are done; Take a close look at managers supervising employees - they have no processes, no clue, don't care to manage, improve the team or grow the business
