    Pros

    They provide lunch for the corporate office once a month, and had decent benefits.

    Cons

    Everything else. The company is a mismanaged nightmare, as evidenced by their significant levels of turnover, including C-suite executives. They encourage and foster a culture of disrespect, disorganization, and a lack of discipline across all departments. Their executives have no concept of cost controls, while flying the corporate jet across the world as they please.

    Advice to Management

    I would say resign, but their CEO and CFO were forced to due to poor performance.

    Pros

    Great location, and office space. Relaxed work environment......... pretty decent perks. There is room for advancement if you are willing to apply yourself.

    Cons

    No structure, no accountability, seems like you are always in scramble mode. Fast pace environment (no hand holding, or training).

    Advice to Management

    Learn to prevent fires rather then fight them as they constant arrives.
