    Pros

    There is a very young atmosphere.
    Lots of opportunity to make friends and hang out after work.
    You get to have a positive impact for clients that can be very rewarding.

    Cons

    Managers do not help their staff, they just throw them in the fire. Then when they fail, they blame the employee and write them up or fire them.
    Backstabbing. Even if a manager tells you to do something, when push comes to shove they will blame you if it goes wrong and take no accountability for giving the direction. If you don't follow their direction when you think it will go wrong, they find a way to get rid of you.
    Major Turnover -- you show up to work every day not knowing who will be leaving, but knowing someone will
    Work in Fear -- instead of positive encouragement and constructive criticism, managers yell and intimidate their staff into following "orders".

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage people properly. Get some training, you need it!

    Pros

    If you want to meet fun people you will have no problem here. Great place to network, because most people find new jobs within 2 years.

    Can accrue 2 weeks vacation starting out.

    You will learn a lot about how to defend yourself and how to manage difficult situations.

    Great place for extremely self-motivated people looking for a challenge. You will be challenged everyday.

    You will have responsibilities outside of your title because it is a small company, broadening your experience.

    Cons

    Management does not investigate problems in order to fix them. They immediately place blame usually making the situation worse.

    Management tends to yell, verbally berate and threaten to terminate employment if a problem arises.

    Interoffice conflict occurs daily due to over-worked individuals trying to meet deadlines and avoid blame.

    Because of high turnover processes are sometimes not known and impossible to follow.

    Process is used as a way to place blame on a department, then individual, even though process is not taught.

    There is no training for an individual job. New employees are left with an employee manual and expected to be responsible for process without a clear understanding of their responsibilities.

    No matter what position you have you will need to train someone around you in order to complete a task.

    Communication between departments is muddy.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on respecting individuals under your authority. Do not abuse your authority. Make a conscience effort to recognize motivated, hardworking, competent individuals and give them more incentive to work for you. Most people love the feeling of a job well done.
