No opinion of CEO

Pros

Good pay. Excellent benefits. Very flexible and laid back management. Lots of opportunity to advance. Hard work, hard play culture.

Cons

Training could use some work as it is not very structured or hands on. Some jobs are slightly repetitive and require some mental toughness.

Advice to Management

Be more responsive to ideas from new people. Some are great at this others not. New employees could use some more hands on cultivating.

    I worked at a la mode full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are some really good perks, but they just don't apply to everyone. Good healthcare and they do quite a bit of fun stuff.

    Cons

    The best perks don't apply to half the company. Also management isn't that great.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let everything roll downhill. Just because you get lashed at, doesn't mean you need to lash out to your employees.

    I worked at a la mode full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I liked the people and the benefits. The activities were fun. The cafe was a huge perk. It was nice having lunch and snacks provided. Relaxed dress code was helpful too. You don't feel like a Dilbert there.

    Cons

    They hire people to do a job but then micromanage every aspect of what they do. There is no true freedom to perform the job you were hired to do. You are constantly under a microscope and learn that upper management is very hypocritical. More of a high school feel.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to upper management is to trust in your hiring skills and allow them to do their job. Don't listen to rumors. Go to the source and ask questions. Engage with your employees more. Make them feel part of the big picture with you.
