    I have been working at MillenniumIT full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Gym, beautiful environment, good laptops, booze, rooms (wink wink), pool, most women although not that great but always in mini skirts, working from home, and Russians

    Cons

    Politics, favorites for those who know management, management has no clue whats goin on, money spent on un-wanted things while probably some division or person must be pocketing half of it, HR division just an excess baggage as the Head earns the highest salary from all HR heads in SL

    Advice to Management

    Whats the point? They would never listen. If you want to downsize start with HR. People are planning on mass leaving this place in bulks, so stop your stupid account freeze and start recruiting in bulk :D you think masking your layoff plans are secretive? Plenty of surprises await some of you too who are hugging on to your desks.
