Pros

You get every other Friday off.

Cons

The corporate culture is kind of scary. Multiple times I was told to "just drink the cool aide" (direct quote) when referring to getting on board with changes in the Corporate Values.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Every other Friday off, casual attire, and in-house restaurant for employees.

    Cons

    Poor mid- and upper- management decisions. Be careful if you want to think outside the box and contribute ideas not in line with management. Management changes their philosophy for success before employees have a chance to embrace it. Some department heads tend to hire friends over talent. And don't expect to be treated fairly if you are over 55. The new Jack does not respect loyal, hard working employees. The company is no longer the caring, respected organization it use to be.


  2. "Extreme lack of direction from other team members"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    It is an open opportunity for you to be able to gain a bit of customer experience, and you get a feel for how to deal with people on a regular everyday basis. Nice first job.

    Cons

    They don't have a set policy about certain things in the company. And the differences between management and the team members usually leads to a lack of communication and poor peer performance.
