Pros

Nice people that work there - generally no attitude and a willingness for team effort. Hours are good, hardly any overtime.

Cons

Insurance benefits aren't up to par in comparison to other publishing companies. Sometimes it felt volatile - you'd be waiting for the other shoe to drop as far as who was being fired or leaving.

Advice to Management

Let employees know more about what the overall the game plan is - don't hide it in a veil of secrecy.

    Pros

    As a recent grad, you are given a lot of responsibilities on projects, with a bit of exposure to senior clients.

    Cons

    No organization structure, little to no communication from management, no sense of team work. Strategy changes continuously, with no sense of direction.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more, set a strategy and stick to it, listen to suggestions from staff, offer more training for analysts and consultants.


  2. "Challenging environment (as expected from a small, young company), but rewarding work"

    Pros

    Excellent small company, team environment. You are as successful as you choose to be. You must communicate what you're doing at all times, but everyone has their eyes on the same goals and it is great to work with people who care and are passionate about fuel cell technology.

    Cons

    You have to bring your A game every day. There is no one to back you up, everyone is responsible for their own piece of the pie. This can be a good or a bad thing (some people thrive in this environment, some people don't like the pressure). There is so much to do, it can be tough to balance out the expectations with the resources that are available.

    Advice to Management

    Set clear and concise goals, commnunicate them, and provide status updates against those goals. If the goals are unrealistic and change due to unforeseen obstacles or new information, then change the goals and communicate them.
