    Pros

    They have great benefits, and all of the tech folks you work with are good people. They are flexible with your schedule if you are going to school or if you have prior engagements.

    Cons

    When working in IT there is no free time. I felt like i worked 7 days a week as people were calling me all hours of the day and night wanting me to fix things. Couldnt get a weekend off to relax and recharge most of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Cross-train your employees. It would make things alot smoother when trying to take time off.

    Pros

    NOTHING. THE BRANDS ARE GOING DOWN SO NOTHING TO REALLY MENTION HERE.

    Cons

    Business going down in a bad way is not the place you want to spend your future- horrible management - no room for growth - horrible work environment of back stabbing and cattiness - not supportive (unless you like cocaine that is) and definitive somewhere I would send my worst enemy not my best friend. DON"T BOTHER!! YOU WONT LEARN ANYTHING EXCPET WHAT NOT TO DO - MANAGEMENT IS LACKING ANY TALENT WHATSOEVER.

    Advice to Management

    WORST MANAGEMENT SKILLS I HAVE SEEN IN A CORP. WASTE OF SPACES!!!

    Pros

    Jimlar management that has been there a long time (generally speaking) are nice, good people. Healthcare used to be free, but that was recently changed.

    Cons

    The senior management is very poor, weak. Management does not have a solid strategy. Product teams try to follow what little strategy they do have in place and then they blame those underneath them for poor performance. Management style is to yell at staff and blame design for everything. This is seen across several several managers at the top. Long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Get much better leaders. Inspire people. Make them want to work and feel good. People will work very hard for people they like and believe in.
