    I have been working at Shopzilla full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. Leadership development training for all managers; 2. Smart, fun coworkers; 3. Innovation is encouraged; 4. Interesting work; 5. Flexible schedules

    Cons

    1. Leadership development training is ONLY offered to managers; 2. Training is very shoddy and documentation is either outdated or non-existent; 2. For a tech company, many processes and tools are very archaic; and lastly 3. While certainly not widespread, some employees in high-ranking roles are allowed (and even seemingly encouraged) to come in late, leave early, avoid responsibility, and basically do very little "work". This behavior sets a terrible example and causes bitterness and confusion for those involved.

    Advice to Management

    --INCREASE AWARENESS. Be aware that some employees in high-roles are taking advantage of the available flexible work options. These few individuals are causing productivity levels to drop, accountability to diminish, and overall morale to plummet.

    --ORGANIZE TEAMS MORE LOGICALLY. Way too much energy spent on "who's under who", which causes undue confusion. Keep it logical and simple.
