Pros

Benefits (paid time off, employee leave, health insurance) are pretty good.
You can learn a lot that is applicable in future positions (at least within the marketing industry).

Cons

Layoffs happen with frightening regularity.
Company is very top-heavy, upper management is ineffectual and unfocused.
Middle management is more of the same.
Pay freezes, 401K freezes, and forced time off/furloughs are the norm lately.

Advice to Management

Value your employees. Read those employee surveys and then act on them. When you make bad decisions, admit them and learn from them.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    You can learn much about credit and credit reports
    Good experience for that better job down the road
    Reasonable benefits

    Cons

    Little chance for advancement
    Dealing with micromanagement
    Management's constant emphasis on the negative and nitpickey attitudes towards accomplishments
    Lack of respect from Management
    Not being kept well-informed

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and try not to layoff so many of those with skill and experience. Sometimes you have to pay a little more to keep a good staff in place. Also, quit going on about how wonderful the replacements in Chile are. It's hard enough to watch your coworkers lose their jobs and wonder when you might be next without having to listen to the praises of those who are taking over particularly when their output doesn't begin to match up.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Work / Family balance - they are good about allowing time off. Very accepting of many types of people - co-workers are great to work with.

    Cons

    Growth for the sake of growth is not good - too eager to push upgrades out without fully testing the software. The upgrades often break functionality that was working and very little care from Sr. Management to correct these issues so they just build up.
    Management - it was common practice to promote from within and promote the worst person on the team to manager.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down and fix what we have - then work on adding functionality.
