Pros

The idea is amazing and hearthwarming. The execution - poor.. Not surprised the company is going south~ I wish they (the management) were more open to suggestions and didn't run the company like a sweatshop - its proven it doesn't work. They might get funds to keep going, but their best fund is the talant that believes in the idea and works hard... Treat your workers with respect and make them happy - things will go much better!

Cons

The execution - poor - Can't expect people to renounce their life and familly...

    Pros

    The original company goals are admirable
    The employees are smart and fun, extremely talented
    Great location
    Great ideas and creativity amongst employees, but need to be better cultivated
    Individual tasks relevant to job description are fun and challenging.

    Cons

    No PTO whatsoever--> quick burnout
    Management treatment and administration policies vary widely from employee to employee
    Lack of communication and clear vision on part of CEO/management
    No sense of balance between work and personal life, extremely intrusive.
    Needs more focused art/design direction.
    Tasks are heavily micro managed
    CEO's roles are spread way too thin; seems to be from lack of trust in senior staff

    Advice to Management

    You need to believe that your employees will work hard and passionately regardless of your over management. Refocus company goals and solidify team direction and product design.

    Pros

    Chance to take on different roles
    Get to see company being built from the bottom
    Challenging tasks
    Get to work with smart idaelistic coworkers

    Cons

    No PTO and forever on "crunch time" (12+hrs everyday)
    No work life balance or respect for employees personal lives
    The founder's parents watch everyone like hawks to make sure everyone is working all the time
    Very sad to see smart coworkers get burnt out and disillusioned

    Advice to Management

    There are very smart people in airy who can do much better if they arent micromanaged
    You might get better results from happy employees instead of trying to make everyone work and work all the time
