    Pros

    Decent pay, creative environment. Not terrible as an in-between job, didn't seem like a great place for longer term employment.

    Cons

    Must find your own street parking, they aren't transparent about how long they will keep contractors, and 3 project managers quite in the three months I worked there.

    They have catered lunches and go out to lunch, but contractors are not allowed to take part. Sometimes they expect you to leave for 3 hours while the team goes out to lunch and come back for 2 hours of the day.

    Most of the full time employees would complain about how many hours they were expected to work.

    Pros

    Some of the people there were really hard working at nice.

    Cons

    Jason Kuo is the worst manager I have ever seen. He tries to mimic Tony Hsieh without any of the actual charisma, charm or intellect and probably has really low self esteem. Because of this, he asserts his power on his employees by verbally threatening them and making them feel just as bad about themselves as he does about himself. The worst part of it all is he fakes that smile

    Advice to Management

    Fire Jason Kuo. Oops! Too late. Hes already gone!
