Pros

Work Life Balance, Brand, Kind Culture. This is a place where you can breeze through work, have a job versus a career and still have a great brand on your resume.

Cons

Pay, Politics, Passive Aggressive Culture. The longer you stay, the more you are underpaid unless you play the politics and get promotions.

Advice to Management

Pay and Promote for skills, intelligence, and experience, not relationships and politics. Be honest with your employees, tell it straight and people will respect you for it.

    Pros

    strong global brand, opportunities to expand into other areas, competitive salaries and benefits, strong executive leadership

    Cons

    The company is not especially strong at creating an inclusive environment for remote employees. They put a lot of emphasis on being a progressive employer in this way, but their actions don't always match their words.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good room for growth and positional movement. Great training and support. Good name brand recognition. Good company benefits and amenities.

    Cons

    Very political, all depends on who your manager is. Position was extremely misrepresented, salary is a joke for the work that is done. So many uncontrollables that directly impact your performance.

    Advice to Management

    If you want respect from your employees, be honest with them. Don't come off as a know it all when you've never even done the position. And don't try to pretend like you have.
