    Pros

    The paycheck hasn't bounced. Anyone NOT in management is very nice and pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Constant pay cuts, lay offs, poor poor poor upper management. Owner's have huge egos and do not care about their workers. They scream at people constantly when they should be looking at upper management for a failing company. They will be nice to you one day and then laid off the next because you looked at them wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Lose your egos and take care of your people! Don't hire unqualified managers who make huge mistakes on their job.

    To sum it up, the WORST company I have ever worked for. Run, run far way from here...

    Pros

    The meager paycheck hasn't bounced when cashed. Other than that, I can't add anything "Pro" about working here. Look elsewhere, anywhere before accepting a position with this company. They'll promise you everything, tell you what you want to hear, then deliver a totally different experience. Ask any current or the MANY former employees about this. So many people, younger and older, have taken positions here, only to bolt to another company after a short period. The writing on the wall becomes clear immediately.

    Cons

    1. PAY - start low, stay low. Reviews and raises are non-existent. Employees that have 5+ years of service still making the same pay as the day they started. Salaried employees are overworked, hourly employees are told that overtime work and pay will make up for low pay rate (work more and you'll make more). You're theirs 24 hrs a day, seven days a week.
    2. Owners/partners - arrogant, egotistical, non-involvement in actual goings-on within the company. You're lucky to be working for their company. Right...
    3. Operations management - clueless, arrogant, idiotic. Disorganization runs rampant. They're lucky they have somewhat competent employees actually working and making things go right. If it was left up to them, this place would collapse in on itself. They talk down to anyone who's not at their level. Again, you're lucky to be working for the company.
    4. Workplace - a JOKE. Dangerous, disorganized, no processes or procedures to follow. Little regard is given to employee safety, comfort or well-being. Every day is by the seat of your pants. When an employee gives their notice, nothing is done to try and have that employee stay; "We didn't need them anyway" is the mindset. Even though that employee is a valuable asset to their respective department. Not that anyone should want to stay working here.

    Advice to Management

    Firstly, get some management people that actually know what they're doing. The current Ops Manager doesn't have a clue. Start appreciating the people that come to work every day for you and make this company run. They go above and beyond to make sure the customers are taken care of on a daily basis. No recognition is given for a job well done, but when one minor things goes awry, the hammer comes down. You give absolutely NO incentive to employees to want to come here every day and do their job. It's not rocket science...

    Pros

    Great place to learn the trade. Friendly people who really care about what they do.

    Cons

    Raises are rare, requests to advance are ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Unless you start buying people instead of just paying them to work, you will see the production department continue to be a revolving door.

    Great coworkers, interesting projects and constant learning. Decent area and fast growing technologies and connections.

    Professional service style web shops are always tough when clients are ultra demanding and not very sensitive to the time it takes to properly create sound products

    Keep investing in the talent you have around you

    Pros

    The department heads and fellow client service reps are all very informative and educated. You can learn quite a bit from them as they realize the more you know, the better of an asset you are to them and the company.

    Cons

    The private owners are all extremely fake and egotisitical. It is extremely political, but then again what place isn't. They are constantly making job-cuts.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees as you would respect yourselves. You have built a great business and the people working for you take pride working there. Treat the people that make you rich a little bit better and you might have a lower turnover rate and higher employee satisfaction.

    During the busy season you may work a lot of odd hours.
