Pros

NOTHING- looking for another job. DO NOT APPLY TO THIS COMPANY YOU WILL PROBABLY BE HIRED WITHIN A DAY AND WILL REGRET IT AFTER A DAY.

Possibly a resume builder since they work the hell out of you.

Cons

Where to start...
*NO BENEFITS
*LOW SALARY
*Management who do NOTHING all day and get paid more than really hard dedicated workers getting 18/hr.
*The motivational meetings are the worst, it's more like a cult and they want to reassure you that everything is perfect and you're lucky to even have a job. (yes true- not in this case, this job will give you PTS)
*They're so cheap we never have what we need in the office to even function and struggle to do the job sometimes because lack of resources and organization and standard procedures.
*The accounting is so backwards they have a million people doing one thing. All they care about is money but they don;t have an actual strong accounting deot.
*So much change happens you don't know what you're going to have dropped on you when you come back from your lunch.
*They mold you into thinking about work %100 and thats not right. Everyone is always stressed out. Not only I but other employees say this job is effecting their home life.

Advice to Management

You're starting to do something right by looking at NUMBERS vs who can BS their way to the top. You increase salaries and promote idiots, take a look at talent and the employees who dedicate their time and energy. If someone is awesome at their job don't keep them there at the same low salary for all the hard work they have done and continue to do (and money they have made for you)-have them manage , give them better compensation and let them expand their talents onto others, otherwise you will continue to struggle and lose people to better more established companies with BENEFITS like 401k, Health, Vacation, Sick Pay and better salary. Face it you're not a startup any longer and you have he money.

Look at job descriptions and base your salaries on that- work load & responsibility should equal better pay.

We're an American company- start giving us the usual Holidays. It's discriminating to other culture and religion what you're doing by not giving us the typical American holidays to enjoy with our families.

Shame on you for being so greedy.

    Pros

    will soon be put out of business by government agencies, and will turn on each other as that goes down

    Cons

    won't be put out of business soon enough to prevent many people from getting caught in greedy web of lies and professional incompetence

    Advice to Management

    Go back to what you know best: jail time
