Pros

Great time off, benefits and work life balance. The work was interesting and varied and the company still had many good people to work with.

Cons

Very poorly run by senior management, constant threat of layoffs and nepotism around promotions. No real chances for growth or innovation.

Advice to Management

Focus on one or two areas only. Make the tough decisions around areas to focus on instead of employees feeling the death by one thousand cuts.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Excellent atmosphere, especially for younger people. Interns are treated with respect and are given plenty of meaningful work opportunities. Company sponsors several fun events on a nearly weekly basis.

    Cons

    Pay could be a little better for interns - its a little on the lower side compared to what you would get at a similar company.

    Advice to Management

    I think that the company should continue its initiatives and perhaps be a bit more aggressive in pushing them out. I believe more effort should be put into increasing awareness of the company's rebranding.
