    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    A number of people at the company are good to work with. The content of the job can be satisfying. Management throughout the company provides an inconsistent experience but it has the possibility of being good if working on the right team. The jobs tend to be very stable, but it feels that it is stable because of a large amount of voluntary employee churn.
    And last but not least, Free coffee!!! Restrictions apply based on time of day (about a 15 minute window in the morning).

    Cons

    Some management doesn't listen to the employees.
    They are more than happy to praise dead weight on the team at the expense of the well being of productive team members.
    The team members are held to wildly different expectations.
    Management will force you to do things you don't agree with or feel is correct even when better ideas are proposed.
    No verbal agreement during the interview process should be treated as true. Nothing management says during the interview process should be counted on unless it is in writing. They will make promises to sell the job that will not be honored even when asked about it at a later time.
    Focusing on a single task and doing it well is very difficult due to the lack of focus in planning and execution from the management team. Everything is top priority.
    Teams tend to shy away from new technologies and skillsets in favor of repeating what they have done for ~20 years. Even when a new technology is tried, there is no emphasis on using the technology differently which will set up difficulty for the projects.
    You cannot expect to get the tools or materials that are required to do your job efficiently. Even items < 200$ are extremely difficult to obtain.
    Management is more than happy to set expectations of your work at the expense of your personal life or mental well being.
    The wages are sub optimal.
    Raises for even very good reviews will result in raises barely above cost of living increases.
    The benefits are mediocre, they play games with the benefits like 401k so that employees don't know what to expect or plan for.
    There will be awkward moments in company wide events due to politics and religion for anyone that doesn't share their beliefs with upper management.
    Management is more than happy to lie to employees about issues affecting their work and deadlines.
    Management tends to use stall tactics instead of addressing employee concerns.
    There is no trust in the employees.
    There is no ability to work from home and no flexibility in work hours or schedules.
    Management will complain loudly about showing up 5 minutes after 8am but will never acknowledge if an employee stays 3 hours late to accomplish a task.
    There is little to no acknowledgement for working hard and picking up the slack around critical times.
    Management will openly express their distrust for their employees through both their actions and their words.
    They have no qualms with hiring skilled help and treating them as expendable, easily replaceable commodities.
    They tend to hire employees by weighing the decision very heavily on cost of employment and very little emphasis on quality of employee.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing games with employees.
    Start hiring competitively and compensating competitively.
    Respect your employees with proven track records to do the right thing.
    Give your employees more flexibility and freedom and think about your actions when it comes to morale of employees.
