    The company is open to new ideas and actually allows its employees to test new industry trends. The employees work together towards the same goal and there isn't any backstabbing or competitiveness for promotions.

    Pros

    Great people. Inviting and warm team atmosphere. Great compensation. Freedom and flexibility.

    Cons

    High Turnover. Pressure. Clientele

    Advice to Management

    Not Much needs to change, but when the newbies hear about the old pay structure it makes us wish for those days (may cause a little frustration). There was not much slack given the recent natural disasters. Other than that you are great.

    I have been working at Martindale-Nolo full-time

    Pros

    The culture is a lot of fun, while still making sure the work gets done. Managers are all easily accessible and ready to help with whatever is needed to make sure everyone succeeds. They recently put in new vending machines, so the food and drinks are always stocked. It's more expensive than before, but there are more options (and they're better than before), and at market prices with the ability to pay with card, so it's really not a big deal. The social committee and HR work hard to make sure there are fun events throughout the year to add to the fun environment.

    Cons

    The base compensation is a bit low, especially for the Bay Area, however, there is ample opportunity to increase the overall pay with commissions/bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to suggestions for improvement from the employees and implementing them.
