    "DISHONEST MANAGEMENT WITH UNETHICAL LAWYERS TO BACK THEM"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Above the market salaries
    The benefits and perks
    Incredible bonuses
    Little work and a lot of Play
    If you are exempt then you have a potential opportunity to achieve a promotion to a higher career position.
    Very generous with supplies and tools to do the job.

    Cons

    If you are hourly, then you will never be able to obtain a promotion or a transfer.
    Management will undermine you when you attempt to obtain another position.
    There is no confidentiality with upper management and especially Human Resources.
    If you are a happy person then management will look for ways to bring you down - like accuse you of a wrongful thing.

    Upper management is encourage to say "I don't remember;" instead of flat out lying.
    Company is big on relaliation and they encourage it via their lawyers

    Advice to Management

    Be Fair
    Be Honest
    Don't be Jealous or envious of your staff members
    Remember you are making 100% more than your employees, cut them a break.
    When Upper Management celebrates the success that the staff members created, give them credit for it; instead of accepting all the credit and bonus pay for it. Also when you guys celebrate with liquor in the first level cafe and auditoriums during work hours; please consider allowing the actual workers to go home early.

    Pros

    Great people who are very friendly and more than willing to help you learn.
    Interesting work in a dynamic industry.
    Great work/life balance.
    San Diego.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic culture, the company is very risk averse so they do not act on many opportunities.
    Very hard to move up, HR has very strict guidelines for promotions which are based more on tenure than ability (at least at the lower levels).

    Advice to Management

    Be much more clear in the strategic direction of the company. Being open to anything makes it much harder for employees to know which types of opportunities to be looking for.
