I have been working at E la Carte full-time

Pros

- Small startup is appealing

- Unbalanced workload
- Low compensation (unfulfilled promises for raises/rewards)
- Expensive sub-par benefits

Advice to Management

Listen to employees. Ask questions, solicit feedback, find pressure points, and actually care what they say, and do something about it.
Same goes for customers; don't try to sell them what you think they want. Listen to what they actually want, and if we can't deliver it, be honest about it.
Communicate openly. Be transparent like you say you are.
