    Exec Leadership Lacks Focus and Support

    Pros

    Very entrepreneurial, which is a Pro, but also a necessity to get things done.

    Cons

    Very little support or resources - staffing, budgets (A/S, contractor, third party, etc.), financial analysts or insights. Archaic "9-5" work schedule, attendance is taken often.

    Employees who don't socialize with the right people don't exist

    Pros

    Gain experience quickly because they are understaffed and do not provide training. If you like Trump, you'd probably like Stephen. He appears to be on a similar vitamin regimen.

    Cons

    Beyond the constant layoffs, poor treatment of lower lever employees, upper management hires girl friends to not show up, a lot of harassment but no one to complain to because HR gossips to the people who are causing the problem. You can get a lot of information from the overly positive reviews here that blame employees for their own poor treatment. I can't really blame the company, but I've never heard so many racist/stereotypical comments in a Los Angeles workplace. No one complains because they'll be laid off or forced to quit. If you sue, they will likely pay you to be quiet and go away.
