No opinion of CEO

Pros

-flexibility of management when it comes to approving personal time off
-ability to work remotely
-great team to work with
-training once a year (but based on budget)
-good # of personal time off per year

Cons

-local office is going down the hill; needs re-carpeting or wall paint (looks gloomy)
-no good salary increase (they always have an excuse why) as they focus more with the $50 - $75 visa card as a way to reward your best performance
-employees feel under appreciated as they do all the work but no return of appreciation
-business is really focused on customer care but not on their employees
-customer can dictate who can go and who can stay in the project (customer is always right)
-local management lacks leadership and will not support you when bad things happen: you are on your own and you will be hit under the bus and they will not care.
-managers don't trust their members; they only trust who they want to trust
-full of dishonest managers
-non-uniformity in some of the benefits that you get compared to what the corporate states when it comes to local managers that approve expenses, number of days working from home, etc.
-expensive health insurance

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Four weeks vacation is their enticement, but it's a double edged sword!

    Cons

    Four weeks vacation but you never get to take. Work avg. 60 hrs a week & it's still not enough for mgmt - disrespect to employees are common here - morale is so bad - mgmt is promoted within & typically someone's buddy & of course they lack any professionalism or mgmt knowledge - hostile workplace - very unhealthy!

    Advice to Management

    Hire professionals from outside & pray they stay any length of time.
