    Pros

    When you decide to quit or get fired "Oh What a Relief It Will Be!".

    Cons

    To many to list but here a few highlights. The pay is low and they term it double gross, this means your low pay also includes their contribution toward any health benefits you may elect. The company is totally dysfunctional and the CAO expects perfection and is an expert at passing blame. No vacation the first year and only 5 PTO days up through 4 years. Did I mention Double Gross Pay! From my experience there I could write a book on how to not manage a company.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves, the bunch of you are totally incompetent.

    Pros

    A company outing or two that includes family and sometimes a stocked fridge.

    Cons

    Worse company to work for ever. They hire and fire tons of people every year. The majority of their business dealings are shady and they never pay their bills. I would run screaming from this company.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror, you are not God, stop acting as if you are.

    Pros

    Really hard to find positives other than most of the employees are good people.

    Cons

    Senior management folks are not out for the employee they are out for themselves. If you are considering working for them best of luck you will need it. They screw their employees as much as they screw their customers. The best advice that could be given to a perspective employee is to RUN!

    Advice to Management

    Sell the place to someone who can run a business properly and cares about the employee's. You can not keep screwing customers and employees and think you are in it for the long term.
