    Pros

    Great pay. Rotating shifts are set up so that an individual will usually work the same days each week, making it easier to have a personal life.

    Cons

    Relations with parent company in Japan are sometimes not where they should be

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Japan needs to make the Norman office feel more secure.

    I worked at Weathernews Americas Inc.

    Pros

    I learned alot while I was there about mobile web applications and was able to add new experiences to my resume. Although it isn't a job I would've wanted to retire from, it was a stepping stone to advancing my career.

    Cons

    Poor communication between managers and project managers, and even worse communication between project managers and developers and team members. Japanese office didn't know what was going on in SF office and didn't understand the American operation. The SF office ended up being downsized and the web development operations were moved to the Oklahoma headquarters and many employees in the SF office were laid off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication with staff would've been great.

  3.  

    Control is part of the culture

    Pros

    Left alone to develop your own ideas, free breakfasts and a drinks room. The company has great potential and is currently a leader in the Weather industry.

    Cons

    Long hours, assessments are based on your "Leaders opinion" not on facts or output, 1 work related suicide in the last 4 years, poor communication, constant fabrication of documents and services for clients and staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-structure your current style, a company with great potential. To reach that potential stop micro managing
