Pros

Lots of young people to socialize with after work - If that is something you are looking for
Some perks such as free food and access to free tickets to sports games - Not as much as they used to

Cons

I agree with the work like a scared animal post
Everything is about billable hours
0 work life balance - Need to drop your personal life at a moments notice to complete a project
Excessively high turnover rate
Poor Health insurance
Poor management

Advice to Management

Pay your employees for overtime. Don't work employees to death. More positive feedback instead of only criticizing what was done wrong. If you are going to overwork employees at least reinstate all of the perks they once had. More opportunities for career growth.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Easy going atmosphere with lots of flexibility.

    Cons

    Management can't look ahead nor plan more than 3-4 months. Priorities change constantly, sometimes in the middle or even at the end of a project. Total waste of developer hours and brings on a very confused atmosphere.

    Overall, they took away the 401k match and there have been no raises in 2 years. Employees are being asked to take unpaid leave to avoid layoffs but there have been numerous layoffs anyway. Mr. Plumeri received a half a million retention fee for staying in his job in this market, I think that speaks volumes.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, they need to appreciate the employees not just say it.
