    Pros

    A very laid back and fun working environment, where creativity abounds. Staff is often included in input of ideas through brainstorming and discussion. Excellent teamwork. I always feel I can go to fellow employees for opinions and get great feedback in return. There is always an understanding to personal issues that may come up which is a great thing for someone with children. Good opportunity for advancement and job growth.

    I worked at Lounge Lizard full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None that I can think of, other than being paid on time.

    Cons

    Worst project management I've ever experienced. Don't bother trying to make friends with anyone because it will be seen as incompetence. Unrealistic expectations of deadlines with absolutely no support or management. Low wages. They will use you for a project under the pretense that you have a full time position, and then terminate you once that project is complete or near complete. Terrible parking.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring incompetent overseas coders. Hire a project manager who actually knows about the internet and programming websites.

    Stop thinking you're doing your employees a favor by letting them work there. Be more honest with customers and don't treat them like $ signs.
