    Pros

    Opportunity to work in client facing role in social media

    Cons

    Typical start-up environment (no structure, no direction, bad mgmt, no inventive to succeed, gossip)
    Management and HR department are nonexistent and not qualified
    Billing department nonexistent and unreliable - (CHECK EVERY PAYCHECK)
    Management/ Sales team lie to clients with responsibility falling on lower level employees
    Owner hires friends who are not qualified
    Be prepared to be berated, yelled at, and then expected to work hard
    Absolutely no trust in employees
    Owner will lie about company events and opportunities that never happen
    Only 3 of the 12 employees have been with the company over a year (All of them are friends)
    No direction or incentives based on performance
    Absolutely no sense of direction for the company
    Full of secrets and gossip
    VERY high turnover rate

    Advice to Management

    Tell the truth, don't hire your high school friends, and focus on employee morale
    Stop lying to clients, be open to criticism, making empty promises to employees
    Pay college graduates what they deserve to be paid
    Horrible insurance benefits and work/life balance
