    Room for growth
    Good insurance benefits

    Be more personable! We want to know you as people not by just names. And work on the parking issue it’s a huge frustration for those who work at the office.

    Pros

    None. None. None. None. None.

    Cons

    Corporate GREED. Does everyone keep a knife under their desk to stab a co-worker in the back?

    Advice to Management

    Stop backstabbing each other in the back for your corporate bonuses. Stop allowing a culture of bullying behavior in the workplace. I am glad I sued you all and I won my severance pay. Take the apple logo you ripped off from me and my boss and make a pie or something else out of it.

    Nice people; nice area to work

    Cons

    Low Pay

    Listen to the concerns of your employees
    Firm up onboarding program
    Figure out space and parking issues instead on sticking your head in the sand
