    Extremely underpaid compared to other companies
    Under average benefits compared to other companies
    Misleading growth opportunities
    Low employee morale and high turnovers
    An environment of "burn-outs" due to high workloads, lack of appropriate prioritization, internal politics, and lack of employee engagement/motivation
    Leaders are not authentic, they don't engender trust
    Poor leadership behavior is never acted upon
    Totally inefficient internal processes & outdated systems
    HR sides management

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees more money and offer better benefits
    Hire competent managers
    Buy Herman Miller chairs
    Keep promises you make
    Value your employees better, take care of them better (not just upper management) and see what happens

    Pros

    easy to get time off
    flexible work hours
    downtown DC
    Gym in the building
    coffee maker (although the coffee tastes awful)

    Cons

    compensation
    HR department sides with Management
    Managers who are in their position due to friends and family
    biases that carry over between departments regardless of ones work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    Try and retain your top talent by paying them a competitive wage and get rid of some of the people who are barely competent enough to correctly complete their day to day responsibilities. This would help morale and show others that you respect and admire hard-work.
