      Pros

      Looks can be deceiving.

      Cons

      Private company means the CEO can treat you any way she likes. Abusive atmosphere made for colleagues sharing anti-anxiety meds on a daily basis. The old adage, "pay your do's" need not apply here. It's more like, "sell your soul." Newbies looking into getting their foot in the door - There are better places and you are worth more than you think!

      Pros

      - Pay is decent but doesn't make up for the lack of professionalism . It's hush money to keep you quiet about all of harassment that happens on a daily basis. - Catered lunch Thursday

      Cons

      - Harassment is rampant and ranges from sexual to verbal on a daily basis by the CEO - Revolving door of clients/coworkers. Clients are fed up with false promises and are leaving resulting in coworkers being fired without any severance. The company has to use freelancers on almost every project because the company has hardly anyone in office anymore. - Paying off/coercing people to write positive reviews on industry related sites to improve perception. They use this to sell clients on their company and it's hard to watch small businesses invest what little budget they have on work they could outsource themselves. To further this point, they had to pay the local magazine to do a puff piece on the to drum up business because they've run the company into the ground.

      Pros

      health insurance catered lunch of thursdays

      Cons

      unclear/inconsistent expectations, inexperienced shady / two faced employees abusive work environment (slamming doors, yelling, screaming) trash talking employees behind their back no communication, unwilling to change bad behavior i was asked to write a positive glass door review on my second day, i had a bad feeling about it but I dealt all the b/s because I needed a paycheck and at first there was enough work for me to enjoy it. this is not how you run a successful business, folks.

      Pros

      Be prepared to become part of a small, select team of talented and real people. RCM is not for the faint of heart but they will help you build a thicker layer of skin. It is fast-paced and can get emotional at times but it comes with a team that has your back if you got theirs. They will push you and test your strengths but only because they know they have it in you. Do great work and show what you can do beyond the project brief and you are awarded bonuses and raises. We work on Fridays and cater lunch on Thursdays. Quick raises/promotions. There is a variety of clients. Dope brand.

      Cons

      Things can get emotional and it can get distracting; just have to get through it just like in real life. You have to log every second of your day but it makes sense if you think about it from the clients and management standpoint. It also your productivity; can't waste time. Starting pay can be low but again you are awarded for doing good work and there are quick raises.

      Pros

      The CEO will reward you on occasion with bonuses. You'll play some fun games on breaks.

      Cons

      This is a caustic and abusive environment. Period. Don't let the other reviews here fool you, the positive reviews are indeed compulsory. I had to write several of them while on staff. I'm sorry to say that I complied because I needed a paycheck. If you need proof, ask how long the average staff member has been there. The insanely quick turnover will show you.

      Pros

      Salary Catered lunch once a week Clients

      Cons

      Welcome to Thunderdome. You are asked to write something good about the company''s CEO immediately to stroke her ego. The work environment is bipolar along with everything else. In my time working here multiple clients left, multiple employees quit or were fired, and the workload was impossible. There is no communication, no leadership, and the culture is absolutely toxic. No one has anything good to say about each other and secretly plot behind everyone's backs on firing them once they leave a room. Do yourself a favor and skip considering this place for your employer.

      No one has ever been admonished for a Glassdoor review and our CEO encourages employees to write anonymous ones to make everyone comfortable if they want to communicate that way, but she ALWAYS emphasizes that they have to be real
