    I worked at Catamaran full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you like over aggressive management and a total lack of teamwork and collaboration between departments and even within some departments, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    The mantra at Catamaran is growth at any and all costs. Management encourages internal conflict and a lack of a teamwork atmosphere. Many employees are always on edge with feelings of just one error and they will be fired.

    Advice to Management

    Read Tribal Leadership and maybe even get professional help

    Ask your employees how they are doing, and suggest alternatives or improvments if jobs are too stressful.
