    I have been working at Ark as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Every day its a new beginning at Ark, new tasks are created every day, you don't only get a desk job, you get a culmination of physical to computer related tasks. You participate in the overall functioning of the office. It is a small intimate ware house office setting so we are all forced to work together as a team to achieve goals. The pay is great, the kick backs and bonuses are awesome

    Cons

    There is not a great benefit package. Your work is determinant on someone's tasks before yours. Small company so the chances of promotions are slim.

    Advice to Management

    Do not get so personal with your employees, keep it professional. I understand the concept behind open door policy, but keep it Professional. Otherwise employees will abuse that trust.
