Pros

Coworkers are generally very bright and fun to work with. The work is challenging and interesting, and it involves cutting-edge Web technology. The benefits package is better than adequate.

Cons

Relentless expectation (often demands) for long hours of overtime well into the night and over weekends -- including explicit instruction to cancel any personal plans -- without any additional compensation or even any possibility for comp time, coupled with hours docked from you paycheck if you sleep in and show up late in the morning. (I have seen people not only docked but actually repremanded for sleeping in and showing up at 11 a.m. after being required to work without extra pay till 2 a.m. the night before.) Lots of last-minute work done way too fast to allow for quality control, and the result is a lot of sloppy work and lost accounts. Virtually no communication from the top about important management decisions; when I was there it was impossible to get an organizational chart, and the various work groups had abstract names that had no functional meaning.

Advice to Management

Institute montly skip-level meetings for ALL employees, and take the feedback seriously. Stop thinking that the employees are driven to perform only for the sake of company profits, unless you can really guarantee that everyone gets a share of profit. You need to give other good motivation for people to care. FInally, stop docking time off if you won't pay overtime. You need to institute a comp time policy asap or else don't be surprised if employees get together on a class action suit to recoup their hundreds of hours of uncompensated labor.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Co-workers are talented and conscientious individuals. Satisfying client needs are high on employees agenda. Great place to start out a career.

    Cons

    Senior management looks for increased revenue while wearing down employee morale. No respect for the employees. I'd love to give my all to help the company succeed, but the lack of recognition and respect sucks you dry.

    Advice to Management

    Retool the management team with new blood. The management team is completely unaware of the mood of the floor.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Strategic for the healthcare industry--good strategic leadership. Allows employees to manage their own personal schedules. Respects the biz dev process. Good research team

    Cons

    Not necessarily client-focused. Unimpressive creative. Allows too much flexibility of team members. Too much emphasis on internal needs rather than client growth needs

    Advice to Management

    Continue focusing on ideas and new business, but allow for greater emphasis and flexibility on inline growth rather than internal processes
