Doesn't Recommend
Approves of CEO

Pros

Good food in the cafeteria, however, it gets boring after a while. Fitness facilities in each building. Flexible when it comes to take a day off ( at least for people with higher positions).

Cons

Promotions depends on who you know. Therefore, you might end up with a terrible supervisor in your department. A person that will have not idea where things are, or how to get them done. So you will be better off asking a more experience co-worker for directions. So if you want to be promoted, you better start kissing your boss rear end.
A lot of gossip goes around which make your work environment uncomfortable.
Poorly pay, and miserable salary rise. In the meantime you will be invited to a company meeting where they will spit on your face how much money is the company making every year. And show off about the company private hangar and jets.
Lastly, you better have a decent salary position in order to take advantage of the fitness program and facilities, and the schedule flexibility.

Advice to Management

Stop hiring supervisor out of the blue and promote those who really deserves it.
Give a better rise and salary to those who make possible the success of your company, that means everyone! you know the company can afford it..
