    Pros

    You can see the changes that we're making to change the culture and environment at the office - particularly the Atlanta office. Although we're extremely disconnected as business units, likely because we're buying so much so quick, we have outgrown our office and are in the process of expanding our Atlanta footprint. The benefits are OK, we do get snacks and drinks for free (a perk unless you're on a diet...) but we have more team culture-building activities that is hopefully going to change this extremely lethargic and boring place for the better!

    - we're growing like crazy
    - salaries are good
    - snacks and drinks
    - fairly casual work environment - you can wear jeans
    - they're cutting off the dead weight and bringing in a lot of new talent

    Cons

    - business units competing for priorities
    - on-boarding is a complete mess
    - our IT is horrible - I feel like we may as well just use DOS-based programs
    - we are still trying to have small company policies but we're outgrowing them

    Advice to Management

    acquisition is great, but one day it may be a good idea to work on how they will work together...a lot of times no direction is given and we just spin our wheels and get nothing done.

    Pros

    Bright coworkers. Many opportunities to grow. Interesting work, day-to-day--never a dull moment.

    Cons

    Penny wise, pound foolish decision-making. Lack of perspective by some members of executive management leads to the existence of unnecessary obstacles. Fear of those same execs prevents people from educating them to help the company thrive.

    Advice to Management

    You've dedicated many resources to building a company with lots of talent. Listen to the employees--they know the ground-level dynamics of the industry. Support them by giving them the resources they need to work effectively. Allow them do their jobs and the company will succeed!

    Pros

    I enjoyed the diversity in the work environment, the salary and benefits were pretty decent and my fellow employees were easy to work with.

    Cons

    There was not really room to grow within the company - it felt like managerial positions were givdn to external candidates.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employee suggestions more; be a little less hands on and less micro-managerial and work productivity will increase.

    Pros

    The company had a great startupy feel. It was good to learn a lot of new stuff and see how the business worked.

    Cons

    Terrible management of interns and payment of interns. They kept losing interns money payments. It also has gotten hit really hard financially. The managers need to be more hands on and take an interest in interns there. Also so many tasks are replicated over different verticals.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to take interest in interns and pay them!
