    I have been working at Sedo full-time

    Pros

    Some fun people. Used to have good parties but not really anymore...

    Cons

    Pay is poor, a lot of backstabbing with the Team-leaders, high turnover, little growth opportunities, and they don't take care of their people. A lot of people fell Into their roles versus actually earning them. A lot of people, especially management, don't know what they're doing.

    Advice to Management

    Stop misleading your people. Treat everyone fairly. Some of you should be let go.
