    I worked at Kingland full-time

    Pros

    Great perks/benefits, a few great individuals, and working with the latest technology.

    Cons

    The team structure was awful. There was no room for growth, and the management in the department I worked was horrendous. No experience and lack of motivation. Since there is no true HR, the culture has significantly worsened.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire a manager that has experience, and not one that doesn't. Team morale was terrible. Promote within.
