Pros

-few work overtime.
-depending on your role, failure to meeting goals has no consequence.
-downtown location
-you get to play dress up everyday.
-you won't have to worry about keeping your skills up to date.
-free bus pass
-health insurance is covered by employer (but your salary reflects this)

Cons

-No career growth
-No mentoring or skill building
-Incompetent managers are in charge of delegating work.
-The majority of talented people leave within 3 years- management will just say "It's not for everybody!" - it apparently isn't for about 30% of the QA staff, the turnover rate is outrageous, yet the problem is always squarely pegged as a "bad hire".

Advice to Management

Rewards productivity and achievement, nuture growth and mentoring. Implement what outside consultants advised. Be more flexible with time off, increase vacations and make the salaries more competitive.

    Pros

    Little overtime on most teams; training opportunities; lots of promotion from within; low attrition rate; excellent health benefits; stock purchase plan.

    Cons

    PTO is more limited than other companies; salary slightly lower than average; low attrition means some dead weight sticks around.

    Advice to Management

    Increase PTO just a bit to help employees. Too many people work when sick because of the limited sick and vacation.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Other than being better dressed than other MIS employees, there are absolutely no Pros. One only needs to read all the other reviews written to get a "feel" for how it really is behind the glass doors!

    Cons

    You are getting paid less, stressing out more, and the benefits are mediocre. You have no metrics to objectively evaluate how much you should be getting paid or how much work you are responsible for. Anyone who thinks this place is good needs to come out of their cubicles and look.

    Advice to Management

    Open up that 1 billion stack of cash to make it worthwhile for the employees for the hard work they do.
