    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Big name, big company, and located in the heart of Silicon Valley. Seems like a good company to work for at first, but it's a total mess.

    Cons

    I was originally hired as a tech writer to submit a blog every two weeks. I've worked there for 3 months now and have only received one assignment, instead of six. If that wasn't bad enough, I haven't even been compensated for the first assignment yet and its been almost two months since submitting the invoice. My manager answers her e-mails to me 2-4 weeks late- it's just a complete mess.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together, you're developing a terrible reputation for the company. It won't be long before nobody will want to work with you guys.
