    Pros

    It's a very casual atmosphere so that is nice in a few ways....attire is comfortable yet still professional (jeans w nice top) and makes it more fun and enjoyable w coworkers if you want it to be. They have good intentions and plans to improve technology/system.

    Cons

    Each branch varies but one thing they all have in common are long hours. Management is the worst. At first you think it's good because you can barely tell they are there but then when it comes to $$ they will take credit for it all and leave you empty handed. Overall, just an unfair atmosphere. Some people barely work at all and others work their butts off in the same position, getting the same recognition and income. Training seems to be slim to none unless you make a friend in that position that is willing to help you out.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention. Do something! Don't sleep on the job. Listen to all employees. They are smart and the hard workers are making you money (bc we all know that's motivation to work) ; so get rid of BS and slackers and listen to those who care....and most importantly, do your job and live up to the expectations!

    Pros

    I haven't seen anything other than a decent location to work.

    Cons

    Stressful, poor project management practices, micromanaged, top level executives have a flavor of the day expectation of what to do and short periods of time to plan and accomplish the work, so guess what, it's sloppy work!

    Advice to Management

    Let's plan from the bottom up. All I hear in Charlotte is how bad it is to work here because the communication has always been "do it now" and "work faster"
    Allow those engineering or performing the work to provide input to go projects. The top down approach and micro managed work style is dated and needs to be removed from this company.

    Pros

    Terrific pay and very nice benefits. High Point is a very nice place to work. Hours were flexible and reasonable. Nice people.

    Cons

    Management is delusional. They believe that they are doing something special, when in reality, they do a good job in some areas, lust like many other companies.

    Pros

    The training program was very effective and gave great opportunities to learn and bond with the rest of the team. They have a lot of events and things to keep a fun environment whenever possible.

    Cons

    They need the events because it was stressful with the long hours and strict timing requirements. The company was also growing really fast while I was there, so things were constantly changing.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication about the company changes.

    Pros

    Wide open! Its still a start up, but it is coming of age and beginning to establish an identity in the industry. If you process improvement is your driving force, this is a great place for you. But, be ready to put the hours in.

    Cons

    Current mid level management could use some reconfiguring. Some young talent being wasted due to poor processes.

    Advice to Management

    A rolling stone gathers no moss and a rising tide lifts all boats.
