    Pros

    We are allowed to wear whatever we want, bring your dog to work. Awesome team, promotion within and very fast. Very laid back, you take breaks and no one is watching over you like animals.

    Cons

    Some department can be very clicky, Ceo sometimes over look customer service. I felt like he treated us very infairly, long hours and always pushing us to work longer but no bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone equally, customer service we work hard and long hours. Stop over looking our team that work so hard for you and very little pay.

    Pros

    Fun and interesting work.
    Great people, made a lot of friends during my time there.
    Hands-on experience with whatever projects you want, I was able to work on plenty of things I found interesting even if it wasn't supposed to be my role.

    Cons

    I was always unsure about the future of the company, definitely isn't the same place that I had heard about in 2010.
    Got the feeling that pretty much everyone was underpaid for their skills.
    Left because I wanted something more stable.

    Advice to Management

    .

    Pros

    A great opportunity for someone just starting out work and breaking into the industry. It could be worse and there are some people there that know what they are doing.

    Poor management is the root of all the problems and trickles down from there. Pay could be better.

    Advice to Management

    clean house, stop being loyal to your friends. they don't know what they are doing.
