    Pros

    Top leaders seem to be committed to making sure the company is improving and growing and that things are working well for employees - good transparency. Appreciate that there are women managers across the firm and that they are there because they have earned the spots. There are opportunities to participate in initiatives and activities to get to know people across the firm.

    Cons

    Nothing unusual that isn't already being addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep celebrating our teams' successes - means a lot!

    Pros

    Events are amazing, catered food is the best, benefits are the bomb, and the people you meet in the company are all so kind, except varied few.

    Cons

    people are always in your business, always gossiping. If you aren't liked right off the bat, other people will stomp you into the ground and get you fired so quickly. HR is seriously incompetent. They never answer the phones, never respond to employees, but somehow think they are better than everyone else. they steal your food for your meetings, they ignore you when you greet them, and just completely hypocritical.

    Advice to Management

    Y'all seriously need to purge HR if you want to improve your company.

    Pros

    The teams are so welcoming when you start work. The CEO comes around and tells people hello. He is so approachable and will help you process ideas you have.

    Cons

    The traffic around the office is terrible but they are flexible with hours so help.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. When staff is frustrated (even when it seems small) - keep listening.
