    Pros

    Brand. Potential exposure to interesting forensic projects.

    Cons

    In reality you can end up doing more litigation support (eDiscovery) than forensic work.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    * Good location close to Old Town Pasadena
    * There is a degree of flexibility to move around within the organization although the latest layoff may have changed this.

    Cons

    * High turnover (42%) leads to low employee morale
    * You need to fight tooth and nail for your deserved salary adjustments
    * You may be working under incompetent management
    * Inept sales managers who are overpaid but not making their quotas in contrast to the underpaid and unrecognized departments that support the inept sales team
    * Ironic technological inefficiencies for a technology company
    * A lot of office politics!!!
    * Horrible accounting and budgeting practices.
    * It was obvious the recent layoff was just for show.

    Advice to Management

    You are a small company acting as a large corporation. Recognize the little people who actually produce work rather than those who simply delegate and take all the credit. If there is no fundamental change, the company should go back to being a private company. It was not ready.
