    Pros

    Good people on team in office, for the most part. Good, helpful communication with HR. Always paid me either on time or a day before. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't communicate. Unable to contact superior unless emails are marked as important and sent multiple times. Wage is ridiculously low. No room for advancement. Other departments unwilling to cooperate.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your employees more than ones every year in a survey you don't read. Unless you want to convey you don't care, in which case, keep on keeping on.

    Pros

    Most positions offer considerable autonomy. It is possible to get better benefits if you're a strong negotiator and willing to push back against their first offer.

    Cons

    Difficult to get in touch with company management. Little personal interaction. Limited opportunity for growth.
