    Pros

    Competitive pay, bonus for good numbers

    Cons

    Negative attitude persists at all levels in the corporation. Nasty emails and talking behind peoples backs is common. Established political groups have closed door meetings to ensure job security. Everyone in the organization is scared of the owner and COO so priorities are aligned towards presenting the best picture to them rather than the truth. However, strangely enough the managing director of professional services feels comfortable enough to openly mock them in large meetings.

    The only real concern by upper management is that you hit your numbers. This creates a survivalist atmosphere where employees are unwilling to cooperate with each other. The only real cooperation comes from political groups that have banded together.

    You must hit a certain number of billable hours every month or you will have a target on your back. Management has monthly meetings where they review spreadsheets to identify who hasn't hit enough hours. However, once you figure out how the timesheet system works there is opportunity to fudge your numbers - this seems to be standard practice for some employees.

    Even putting all of the above aside, it's just not a pleasant place to work. Perhaps it's because the owner fashions himself to be Steve Jobs Jr. or perhaps it's the focus on revenue generation, but there is an overwhelming sense of uneasiness within the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on squeezing every last dollar out of customers and focus on improving quality and efficiency.
