    Pros

    The coffee machine. That's about it.

    Cons

    There is no loyalty is this place. They will dump you for doing nothing wrong if it fits their agenda. If you looking for a place long term this is not it. The salary is weak but they promise big bonuses. You'll be lucky if you're there long enough for a bonus. I have worked at other places and this one is a complete revolving door. Management makes tons of errors and will blame the lower rank. Be careful if you do take an offer from this place and be sure to read all the fine print. There is also no upside potential meaning promotions. This is not to bash the place but to be honest.

    Advice to Management

    Take ownership for your own mistakes. You would have better relations with employees if they weren't in fear for their jobs everyday.

    Pros

    Pay & Benefits are good/excellent
    Most managers / directors are knowledgeable, helpful and hard working.

    Cons

    Red tape is common. I suspect this is pretty normal however, given the size of the company and I understand why it's there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being helpful, innovating and treating your staff well and they will continue to work hard for you.
