    Pros

    There are some good people at the company

    Cons

    There are not enough people for all the work that needs to get done. Management is all talk and take it easy while every one else works overtime and gets the blame and HR is in over their head

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people what they are worth and start getting it together.

    I worked at WeatherBug full-time

    Pros

    -My co-workers were fantastic and helpful
    -I received very good training

    Cons

    My Manager was awful! Very Disrespectful! If you want to feel like your back in High School. Imagine your manager is the "big man on campus" and thrives on making fun of everyone.
    No Work-Life Balance. If he doesnt like you for any reason, Good Luck keeping your job because they will come up with anything to get rid of you. Its pretty pathetic
    Underpaid!

    Advice to Management

    This company could be doing so many good things but instead of spending the money to make it better, the upper management has decided to skimp and therefore is lacking serious skills within the employees.
