    Pros

    -Decent pay -Room for career growth -Dynamic work environment with lots of exposure to different parts of the business.

    Cons

    -Incompetent and ineffective middle management -Procrastination is rampant -Nobody takes intiatives to solve problems; passing the buck is a very common practice here. -The motto is "speed over perfection" - something that is evident in all aspects of the company as its is FAR from perfect; the result is a highly disorganized and inefficient enterprise. -Hostile work environment due to burnt out managers constantly throwing hissy fits over simple issues.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and reward employees for their work, remove toxic lazy managers from the workplace, invest in the future of the company, focus on being the best, not the fastest.

    Pros

    Great opportunity for exposure to many different aspects of product development process. Recently very good pay in comparison with industry competitors. Some very wonderful people to work with in the lower ranks of the organization.

    Cons

    Very disjointed and reactive in terms of innovation, business execution and product delivery strategies. Real lack of respect and value for individual employees, many surveys to access culture with no serious actions to improve work culture. Lots of turn over due to poor management and very unhealthy work-life balance. Reorganization for the sake of profit has left many disillusioned and mistrustful of upper management.

    Advice to Management

    True leadership is doing what is right when no one is watching... A culture absorbed with profit at any cost is destined to implode.

    Pros

    People rotate fast, so there's always an opportunity to climb, or get experience laterally too. Company has started to make an effort to learn what it is doing wrong, and how to better keep its employees happy. Great place to learn a lot in a short space of time.

    Cons

    Supply always get a bad reputation; people are very quick to blame supply without knowing all the facts. Operations and Logistics folks are treated like second-class citizens. Extremely fast paced work culture, which RB seems to call its strength, but oftentimes, mistakes are made and need to be fixed second time round, thereby generating more work.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training managers and middle managers to be better mentors, and not just bosses with metrics to keep. Look out for the overall personal development of people, so they actually want to stay with the company, and not look for an escape route their first week in...

    Pros

    You are given ownership of your work and have opportunity to make a name for yourself.

    Cons

    Too thin on employees, too much work is delicated per person. Terrible systems to use.

    Senior Management is so transparent!!! Only reason they do anything is to max their bonus! Even if it screws the peons who really need it!!!

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Fast paced, move as quick as you want if you are willing to put in the work. Can have work life balance but it will work against you for promotions. High level exposure if you want it. If you are mobile, you will move fast

    Cons

    Grad program is used to get young talent in the door but they are promoted faster than people not in the program. Can be tough sometimes, expectations are high but reward is high

    Pros

    The company offers lots of paid time off. On-site Gym for employees and a fairly lax environment.

    Cons

    General feeling among employees is that the company doesn't care about me, so I don't really care about the company. There is not much engagement, and Project Supercharge boils down to squeezing everything they can out of as few employees as possible.
