Approves of CEO

Pros

Great people. Great Hours. Great brand recognition/ name.

Cons

They are over-reacting to the recession and therefore undervaluing and taking advantage of their employees.

Advice to Management

Take a few management courses... you shouldn't promise things you can't deliver... even if they are "unofficial."

    Pros

    Location, Environment, nice flowers, amenities, spacious cubes

    Cons

    No telecommuting widely available, but should be.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to allow those that want to advance the opportunity to advance... Seems like advancement is just a club.

    Pros

    Benefits were fairly good and not too costly. I was happy with variety you could choose from for medical, dental, and 401k benefits.

    Cons

    I did not have a good experience with my position and my supervisors. Also, when I was interviewing I made sure to specify that I was looking for a position where I had a good work/life balance and was not interested in working much more than 40 hours a week (but I did understand I probably would during month and year end). I was assured they agreed with my needs, however, when I got into the job I was required to work about 50 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    The position I had needed more of an actual set of job duties, there were times I had to go to others looking for work. Plus, if there is going to be consistent overtime should let people know while interviewing.
