    CEO Approval

    Amazing benefits Flexible hours (work in your pajamas as long as you have a reliable data connection to the team/project) Total pay easily exceeds industry Very smart people (higher up you go, more vicious they get!)

    - HR is inexistent: they never answer employee inquiries, never answer phone, email or voice mail left to them by employees - HR avoids answering any questions with regards to salary increase, grades.... - Managers find it smart to pay as little as possible to employees and not promote them - Too tactical and focused on the commits of every week - You will close to never get a salary increase or promotion: there is always a freeze - Finance and HR do their best to cut benefits and salaries if possible - HR keeps reminding you that you are
