    Pros

    A pay check every two weeks, some OK co-workers.

    Cons

    Owner believes that people don't just work their best unless they are scared and whipped. Of course, they don't tell you that coming in. They wine and dine you to get you there, but virtually the minute you walk in you are transformed into a piece of garbage who knows nothing, and, in the case of sales, you are to shut up and dial the phone, and you must get the allotted "phone time" or you get your pay check docked. Nothing runs smooth and planned, it is a constant "hair on fire" atmosphere even though such is a detriment to, not only happy employees, but to overall production, including sales. Nothing you do will ever be appreciated, if ever even noticed. All good things are due to the owner's brilliant work, and all bad things are to be attributed to the thankless employees who would have nothing if not for their worshiped leader. Also, after your first year, your goals will be cranked up to unachievable levels (20-some% growth in a, at best, flat market) and once you can't reach those goals, you will be hated on for it, even though the goals were never realistic to begin with. If you need to work some where where good work is recognized, this ain't the place. Even though you maybe doing an awesome job, you will mostly be treated as if you are lazy and inferior. There will be some forced out praises if you set some new sales record, but the appreciation lasts for about 10 minutes. If you don't always move in a hurried manner and rush around and appear on edge, then you must be lazy and no good.

    Advice to Management

    I don't think there is management, per se. There is the owner, and then there are those who he forces his agenda on. There is no difference, at all, in the office environment no matter how many "managers" come and go (and they do so a lot).

    Pros

    slightly better than fast food restaurant job

    Cons

    Terrible owner and bad management with very little respect for employees. Extremely high turnover, bad Human Resources owner harassment, no corporate ethics, worst work experience ever, very unprofessional work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to lure prospective employees by giving false pretense that they will live near the beach within a seaside community, a hidden gem, where you can enjoy a relaxing lifestyle when in reality the work experience is a nightmare. Joe Doyle the owner needs to retire....

    I have been working at Chiropractic Economics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The boss is very clever and motivated to make money.

    Cons

    A typical day starts out with everyone rolling in around 8:30 except for a handful of sycophants who get here early and the boss who shows up about two hours late every single day (that's not an exaggeration) and when he shows up he might say something sarcastic about how people aren't working hard enough or are being too quiet. Really motivating stuff from a guy who can never make it to the office on time. Then the closed door meetings begin. Dozens of them. It's almost like a fetish here. It's hard to understand why a company this small needs to have so many meetings behind closed doors. Maybe that's part of the reason turnover here is so outrageous. Sometimes you get called into those closed door meetings and put on the spot about why you aren't doing enough. Office doors are always being closed in this place. So much secrecy. It's just a company that sends out two magazines and charges companies a lot to run ads in them. What do you need that many meetings for? In between the closed door meetings people in their cubicles are being kind of nasty to each other because the atmosphere is so oppressive and they're so miserable. It's almost like we forget to be grateful for having jobs and wish we might be treated with respect. It gets really petty here. You're given more to do than you signed up for or your responsibilities or incentives are always being given to someone else. The people who are put in authority positions over the people who actually produce have absolutely no professional training in managing people and only rose to their positions because they stayed later than other people with happier home lives. They've never had a single word published or sold so much as a pencil but there they are telling you how you're doing it wrong. These people hired to manage us are truly awful. The ones who don't want to go home at the end of the day are rewarded with promotions and those who actually like going home to their spouses are looked upon as deadbeats. Then there are the illiterate emails the boss sends around. Another way for him to show you that he doesn't have to follow the rules you have to follow. Like parking his car obnoxiously or pronouncing clients' names wrong or confabulating so much you can't trust what he says. He can do things you can't. It goes on and on and on. But at least they warn you about it up front. They make you listen to a recording of an old time radio play called the Blue Vase. It's about a kid who wants a job and the boss makes him do ridiculous and reckless stuff to prove how dedicated he is - like break laws, damage property, endanger people - just to prove he's worthy to work there. It's such a cult that at Christmas they hand out a trophy to the person who is the most blue vase. People don't understand before they get here. It's weird here. And then someone comes around to ask you to post something positive about the company on glassdoor which you can sort of understand because absolutely nobody would post a positive review about this place unless they were asked to.

    Pros

    There are no pros concerning this job.

    Cons

    Extremely negative work environment. Save yourself and don't even entertain the thought of working here. All of the information in the other negative reviews is true. I don't think the people who wrote the positive reviews were working at this place.

    Advice to Management

    They need to rethink their management style and treat their employees with the respect they deserve.

    I have been working at Chiropractic Economics (More than a year)

    Pros

    Reading all the current reviews are very conflicting. I can safely say working here day in and day out is a miserable experience with no pros except a paycheck every two weeks. You should not stay late there is no appreciation for long hours but they make you feel awful if you take a day off (even though you have kids sick and have days saved). You start out as the gem as the new team player and end up the trash that needs to go out at the end of the day in no time. Working here is hard having to put up with extreme negativity of co-workers constantly complaining and unrealistic goals from management you are supposed to push onto the rest of the team.

    Cons

    Hearing personal drama for the first two hours every morning day in and out. Low pay (bad insurance especially if you have a family) no retirement, long hours, no respect for hard work. Owner's only worry is about his bottom line, acts as if he cares but he really does not unless it benefits his well being. You are constantly reminded it is his money his company. Unfortunately his thoughts and ideas are ludicrous but you just agree they are the best to keep your job. Must obtain unreachable team and individual goals to be considered a valuable team player. YOUR JOB IS ALWAYS BEING THREATENED IF YOU DO NOT MEET THEIR EXPECTATIONS WHICH ARE NOT FEASIBLE TO ACCOMPLISH.

    Advice to Management

    Step back and really think about no one stays here or wants to work here. Negative and unethical work environment. Need a major overhaul of entire company.

    Pros

    - Free (2) drinks on fridays
    - Met and worked with likeminded, intelligent people

    Cons

    My first red flag was during my initial interview when my future boss told me they chose their technology by typing 'PHP frameworks' into Google Trends and picking the top result. Not kidding. All I could do was smile and nod, wide-eyed.

    This company has a desperate hard-on for SEO and (despite what several informed individuals have been telling upper management since before I got there) sees it as the life and blood of their online sales. Management has no clue how modern internet companies operate and there is nothing more emblematic of that than the overpriced 'consultants' they hire to sell them on the narrative that these consultants are members of a cabal that hold a magic secret to being ranked #1 on Google.

    I've personally been told to stop fixing a critical bug with the online sales application and address fixing a link on one page on one of our sites so that it didn't include the 'www' in order to boost SEO. Again, not kidding.

    Turnover is a big issue and I've seen a directorial position go through 4 people in under a year during my ~1.5 year employment there.

    Operational issues aside, management has very old money ideas about company culture. The facade of primary colour painted walls and startup atmosphere erodes when you realize that the chairs only exist so that butts will fill them.

    I could go on regarding a wide range of issues but I won't. Simply put, unless you're desperate for money and a job in the jax beach area, your time and career would be better spent elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. They're smarter than you and know more about how to do their jobs than you pretend that you do.
