    Pros

    benefits are good here but growth is lousy if you are middle management

    Cons

    salary ranges are definitely on the low side. not enough women on top. not very good at flex hours or telecommuting as the company is run by males whose wives stay home.

    Advice to Management

    need to be more flexible with working moms

    Pros

    Provides some learning opportunities and training seminars. And free bagels.

    Cons

    The buying team is one of the worst I've worked with. They give you attitude when you ask them to do, you know, their job after they've been at a rep lunch for 2 hours and want to leave by 5:30. Almost all people I worked with were quick to point fingers over any mistake but were slow to find solutions to the problem. While they did their work (most of the time), the whole environment is too corporate and not fun to be in. Department is unorganized, often transitioning people to different accounts while providing little training time. Also, the CEO of the department is out of touch, thinking an appropriate "team building" meeting consists of making employees review a random case study and asking questions about it.

    Advice to Management

    If you only care about hiring people who hate their jobs, do only what they have to do, then leave promptly at 5pm then continue what you are doing. If you want to hire people who are passionate about what they do and want to give 110%, then you need to give more incentives than free bagels and crappy seminars.

  11. It was enjoyable. Friendly environment.
