      Pros

      Good pay, mentoring and coaching, work-life balance, managers that care!

      Cons

      The ebb and flows of client projects, late-night calls with the US, cost reduction measures

      AP should start exerting greater autonomy and freedom to take on projects outside the US

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at H5

      Pros

      They recruit very smart, fun people It is located in San Francisco The projects change and are varied Very little micromanagement

      Cons

      Job instability- hard to know when you job will be gone, or when/if you are returning Lack of benefits Communication not always prized or a core concept More flexibility in general structure or tasks could be an asset The work flow is inconsistent

      Advice to Management

      You need to diversify your portfolio and client base by "thinking outside the box." There must be other opportunities out there considering the uniqueness of what you do, and the amazing employees you have.

      Advice to Management

      - For a company that has been raking in losses regularly over the past few years, maintaining four offices in world class locations (SFC, NYC, Mumbai, Banglore ) seems a bit irresponsible, tough decisions outside of just laying off employees need to be made. - Accepting wrong decisions and rectifying them early on may reduce the bleeding, but continuing down the wrong path will cost the company. - The same management...
