No opinion of CEO

Pros

Greater than average diversity. Uniqueness is respected. Flexible working hours and rules. A liberal atmosphere. Comraderie among staff. There is plenty of work to do.

Cons

Layoffs. Twelve hour work days. Uncertainty about the future of the company. Fires to put out everywhere. High attrition rate. This year, bonuses were not given, and raises were given only to a select few.

Advice to Management

Give bonuses and raises next year. We have been working hard, and we deserve to be compensated. Invest more in developing junior staff. Don't just toss them into the lake and expect them to swim.

    Very inefficient management. The pay is not competitive and pay raises are scarce. Just recently downsized

    Advice to Management

    Invest more money in finding the right talent to run a tight ship-qualified professionals who will work for the right money; eliminate wasteful spending on overpriced consultants that do a poor job, and greedy MGA's that do not produce enough business.

    Being a smaller firm, we need to retain the best people, in order to do that, we need to start paying them above average for just about everyone does more work than similar roles in other firms.
