    I have been working at Connect full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Energetic work environment, regular catered lunch and early leave before holidays, good PTO, nice people who are genuinely interested in you

    Cons

    Quick turn-over rate.....office is 90% under the age of 40, therefore seen as disposable/replaceable. At least once a month someone is let go, regardless of good/bad performance. Senior management is not heard, informed, or part of CEO decision making that affects the company as a whole. Will let good workers go just to save a buck. Will fire/rehire the same people multiple times. Office needs revamping

    Pros

    Pays well for what it's worth.

    Cons

    Disrespectful and pretty racist, find somewhere else to work. I was also told they like to go on glassdoor and write good reviews to counter bad reviews, so be on the lookout for a "great" review after this one.

    I worked at Connect full-time

    Pros

    They seemed aware of retention issues and seemed to be making steps to improve the office culture. The work-life balance was good and it is family first business. Free of micromanagement.

    Cons

    Management often seemed clueless in terms of day-to-day operations but they are good at the company's main product of producing events and fostering relationships. If your job does not involve business development here, your career will stagnate.

    "Poor Management"

    I worked at Connect full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed attending the conferences.

    Cons

    Management is awful. I knew of at least 5 people in my department alone that chose to leave the company due to how they were treated by our manager. Unless some changes are made soon they will continue to lose more people. Also, there is no room to grow.

    Pros

    Great Co-workers: mutual abuses bring people together

    Cons

    The management treats you like dirt, it's a toxic, shady culture, the pay isn't competitive, you see good people being fired for no reason with no explanation. I am a generally positive person who was nearly broken by the way I and others were treated by this company.
