    Pros

    Very friendly and laid back staff. Flexible hours. Casual dress code. Very easy to access via public transportation. Has volunteer days to give back to the community. Competetive salary.

    Cons

    Senior management lacking in vision. Leveraging extremely old technology stack. Technical staff viewed as an expendable resource by business counterparts resulting in sub optimal technical descision making. Smart tech staff not leverging their skill sets in most cases. Cool projects outsourced to consultants who do poor work while full time staff cleans up their mess.

    Advice to Management

    Trust in guidance by your tech workforce if you truly want to be a world class organization.

    Pros

    The best part about working here is doing something a little different everyday. Different menus, locations, clients. I never get to bored or frustrated by doing the same thing everyday.

    Cons

    The long hours, the very few days off, vacation requests getting denied. I do love a lot about the job but the hours are literally 24 hours a day. Any hour of any day of the week
