    Pros

    Speakeasy is a machine that turns smart people into talented people. After a year or two you will likely be far more advanced at your skill set.

    Cons

    It's very hard to get promotions and salary increases at Speakeasy. You really need to play hard ball (preferably when you get in) in order to get any kind of a raise. As a result, many of the highly talented staff have been leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on development of culture and creating a fun atmosphere. Also try to outline a clear path that indicates how to get promoted.


  2. "Time to make a change on the Management level"

    Pros

    Excellent co-workers, great work environment, perfect location. Made some great connections ans long lasting friends while working at Speakeasy. Very helpful in lost situations.

    Cons

    Management needs to be rebuilt. Focusing on what is making the company excel, would be key. Management is too focused on keeping long time(overpaid) employees happy. Rather than out with the old and in with the new.

    Advice to Management

    Make some changes in how you treat your employees. People will start jumping ship if, such changes are not made. Bruce is a great guy, just think his heart is in the wrong location.
