    Great benefits, decreased pay

    May 9, 2022 - Account Support Representative in Newbury Park, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great benefits; flexibility and understanding when situations arise; best maternity leave based on what others are offering (offer extended bonding time as part of their package for mental health); beautiful facility; and now depending on position, people are able to work from home.

    Cons

    Less pay and more work gets piled on as people leave so you can end up doing work made for 3-4 people and expected to make deadlines so it can be stressful. I personally did not like the company because I felt like my home life was suffering and I was starting a family. I was also laid off from COVID. To me, it felt like a job where you can get too comfortable and be afraid to leave even though its less pay because the benefits are so good.

    Pros

    Will not find better benefits anywhere everyone in the company is very approachable, the CEO tries hard to get to know everyone. I had nothing but great experiences from the top level executives. college reimbursement program so you can get yourself a degree.

    Cons

    Covid has changed the company. very small amount of people working in office. seems like a disconnect from middle management to the top levels.
