    Pros

    You can learn a lot since its a small company. For the most part people are nice .. opportunity to move departments but at a price so there you have to be carful.

    Cons

    I would say the majority of the long term employees are all family or middle eastern. Its a cultural thing. They live to work not work to live. If you are a work/life balance person I would say this is not a good fit. They monitor your internet access, put you in a box 8-5 and do not allow work from home unless you have an exceptional one off situation. Management spends too much time training because of turnover then they do building business. The amount of time reinventing the process has consumed upper management and taken precious time away from business.

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    Upper management is this companies biggest problem. This was an extremely toxic work environment, but they blame all of that on their employees. Their approach to “value” is a one way street. You have to value them, but they do not value you. They have an ALARMING large turnover of employees. I can only ASSUME that this is because of the way they treat their employees. My advice to you whom are seeking employment here at this company is please do your research and reach out to the community they do business in. Listen to others who also have first hand knowledge and experience with their practices, behaviors and current status in that community. You owe that much to yourself and your Family.

    Pros

    Coworkers are really good people

    Cons

    This is not a professional place to work at. Their work process changes everyday and it does not apply to every project. Upper management does not have any respect for their employees. The environment is really toxic since it seems like they put their employees against each other. Very negative vibe around. You will work extra hours including weekends and holidays to assist to their events or attend clients but there is not flexibility for the employees when they need time off.

    Pros

    It is very hard to think of any.

    Cons

    Company's upper management is manipulative. Company is driven by money and money only. Upper management will talk ill of one employee to another. Very unprofessional. The environment and vibe is very negative. NO promises are kept. You can be fired any day or a better used strategy in past year has been to push employees to a point where they just quit. Work-Life balance ? NOT encouraged Low pay - The term "Bonus" is only used to keep people going on low pay. You will most likely not see one. "Process" will change e.v.e.r.y.d.a.y. There is major lack of process. Very unethical in how clients are treated. HR can not keep information anonymous. Company does not encourage growth on an individual level. Very stressful work environment.

    Design team was amazing to work with. Great people. Unfortunately none of them are there as everyone has left.

    Very unprofessional company. Extremely toxic work environment. Upper management takes advantage of staff and makes promises but no follow through. Upper management will try to put other employees against one another.
