    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, Work from Home, Pretty Easy work, Free Lunches, Good "starter job"

    Cons

    Work is not true accounting or analysis and is super boring.. spreadsheets and typing stuff into systems. The pay is low, benefits are terrible, people promoted have no leadership or communication skills. No opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate the people chosen to be "Leaders". People skills and approach-ability should be great for someone to be leading other members. Disperse work evenly, so many people are bored. Develop some sort of career path for people to advance and get promotions.

    Good pay and short commute.

    Cons

    Very cliquish with limited advancement "outsiders." Lost contracts to competitors resulting in staff layoffs. No minorities at Senior Management Level.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to employee moral which means more than buying pizza for all hands meetings.
