    Pros

    Great place if new to IT. Outages, bad decisions and short of staff will provide an opportunity to learn.

    High voluntary attrition rate, low morale, no respect for employees, unrealistic expectations and dysfunctional leadership. This is a "scapegoating" environment.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. The high attrition rate should tell you that problems exist.

    Pros

    The people make this job worth coming to everyday. The mission of the company is very heart warming. If you aren't on a specific track, you have flexibility to make your job what you want. The owner is a very generous, thoughtful and caring leader.

    Cons

    Management needs to turn over. This company is stuck in the 90's. For example, this company still adhere's to the business professional work attire for non client facing positions. The senior management team is old and still trying to do what made them successful 15 years ago.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep young talent, you need to be competitive with salary. This company can not succeed on the mission alone.
