Pros

1 (optional) meeting each week
Lots of parking, office park shuttle service to train/HQ near train
Free lunch on the firm every day.
Flexible 40-hour week (7-3, 9-5, etc)

Cons

Development is emphasized...so many new versions of product sometimes causes inconveniences for other departments.

Advice to Management

Drawbacks to the "Silo-ed" structure are mounting...what good are local optima? Mysterious development problems obviously spillover into marketing and sales depts.

    Pros

    Free lunch during lunch break, meaning you have to work and the company pays for lunch for you which is then delivered to the office

    Cons

    horrific work culture
    no respect for employees and their contributions
    no adequate pay, ideas and improvements which make money for the company are not shared with the employee
    company hires private detectives to spy on private life of employees
    company enjoys paying lawyers instead of their employees
    they do not stick to any promises or contracts, you have to go to court to get what you are legally and contractually entitled to

    Advice to Management

    n.a. : as they think they do not need advice,
    Thomas Peterffy should think about and respect his employees who made him rich

    Pros

    Talented development staff. Everyone in the same "situation".

    Cons

    This entire organization is run by the delusions of one person... the people in customer service are good, but the systems that dictate the methodology is awful and unbending.

    The company seems more like a psychological experiment than a business.

    Advice to Management

    haha...useless. It's Thomas Peterffy.... Take some value in the people who made you rich.
