    Pros

    Your colleagues make the job tolerable. Free food as vendors are always sponsoring lunch and learns & snack a sells. Free gifts are given from time to time

    Cons

    Where do I begin... POOR MANAGEMENT, they do not know how to talk to there employees. They(Some) are very condescending and disrespectful and when you do speak your mind or try and stand up for yourself you are shunned.

    The managers are clueless and have no idea what they're doing. They have processes that are counterintuitive to your success.

    If you are an ASR, you will never get credit for the success of the team. It will always go to the SAR and your hard work will always be overlooked by management. But the moment the team starts to slip in terms of numbers, it is all your fault. Politics plays a huge role in this company. Even if you're a great employee, if they don't like you, you will not get ahead.

    Which leads me to my next point, no room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat employees with respect.

    Learn to set realistic goals.

    Learn to be leaders instead of just managers

    Pros

    The best work environment I've ever worked in. It's a great place to start your career in the tech industry and really encourages occupational growth.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great, however, they are required to enforce monthly reviews of each individual which really isn't necessary nor efficient.
