    Pros

    Excellent starting pay and benefits. If you are lucky, you get to work with some great people.

    Cons

    Pay does not seem to match importance of job function at certain levels. Most promotions are based on who you know. If you are unlucky, you are stuck working with incompetent people and they will bring you down.

    Advice to Management

    Solicit feedback before making sweeping changes that sound good on paper. There are a lot of employees that are doing more harm than good, get rid of them.

    Pros

    Total Compensation package is excellent, with wonderful short and long term bonus potential. Career opportunities abound as long as you are willing to relocate around the US. In addition, the benefits offered are industry leading. Folks who are entry-level can be compensated well above what they would receive in similar roles at other companies.

    Cons

    As with many tech or retail companies, the pressure is rather severe. Work/life balance is nonexistent above the customer service or sales rep level. Vacation time is really just working time outside the office. The employees, entry-level and otherwise, tend to be treated as disposable. Corrective action is delivered consistently, but for the most minor infractions for entry level employees. Many employees live in fear of being fired for missteps. In many cases, fear drives achievement, not passion.

    Advice to Management

    Senior managers tend to talk a good game re: people focus, but most decisions are made as though employees are mere cogs in a wheel.
