Pros

Great place to work. Great environment with a tremendous work/life balance. Management listens to feedback and everyone wants to succeed.

Cons

Other then compensation, not really any cons. Great place to learn in an exciting environment, lots of people have left and been very successful with startups, so obviously they are doing well at attracting talent.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work!

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great people, with some major exceptions. Most are easy to work with, but some are really pushy with their agendas. Everyone else just has to suck it up for those few people.

    Great work/life balance, to the point that some people don't even work a normal 8 hour day. Good job if you don't need to innovate or work long hours.

    Cons

    Getting promoted has more to do with timing and luck more than actual merit. You have to be in the right place at the right time and not get on the bad side of any of the people on the "committee" that decides if you're allowed a promotion. Some people get promoted after a year; some take several years. Close to impossible to get promoted if you're not in the clique of favorites. Used to a be a more easygoing, fun environment, but now it's all about politics.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let a few pushy people make all the decisions and always get their way because they're "difficult." Get rid of the slackers because it damages the morale for the people who actually do a good job and work hard.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    nice location if you like the city.
    non confrontational environment.
    family friendly if you want to have kids
    clean office.

    Cons

    so boring
    very tedious
    very process oriented,
    stifling environment, a "just do as your told" type attitude
    rigid inflexible managers.

    Advice to Management

    allow more innovation and new ideas. Don't be so rigid with respect to process. And you are in an industry that is becoming more commoditized.
