    Pros

    Great entry-level opportunities & internships, staff is intelligent, responsible and friendly, beautiful office in downtown Annapolis, casual dress Monday-Friday, Keurig machine w/ free coffee/tea in the kitchen, frequent fun activities, bonus structure, SUPER stable company, and the President believes in total transparency and honesty.

    Cons

    Parking is $37/month and family benefits are a little pricey

    Pros

    Flexibility, very qualified staff who speak many languages, nice office. Good for entry-level positions. Stay until you get a line in your resume and then move on!

    Cons

    Terrible work culture, (managers talk behind people's back; create competition among staff); staff is overworked and a way too qualified for their positions. Human resources managers are evidently uninterested in supporting employees. As others have said, crazy turnover of dissatisfied people. Pure bitterness. Zero training or incentives to become more knowledgeable for the sake of professional development. People usually can't stand the place for more than one year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide real training, invest in your employees. Stop underestimating your staff and constantly trying to make them compete with one another. Make people work together. Provide real support. Hire qualified human resources managers who know what they are doing. Long-term and loyal employees are more valuable than trying to maximize profit. Improve the culture and environment. End of the year parties are OK but a healthy environment is far more important to good performance and productivity. Cut the gossiping for mid-level managers.

    Pros

    Good place to get work experience and move to a competitor company for twice more salary.

    Cons

    High expectations for extremely low salary, heavy workload, zero training, lack of organizational culture, very high turn over ( barely anybody stays longer than a year) weird work environment...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your attitude to employees, pay them more and adequately to their high degrees; most employes are way overqualified for this type of job!!!!
