    Pros

    Most people I work around are good people

    Cons

    Your commission salary is based on customer surveys. The survey itself is confusing. You get marked off for things you can't control. They are more concerned with the survey then if you're a good employee when people who fill the surveys out don't care about your job. Sometimes they are in a bad mood or have a spouse fill it out. But, people are fired for low surveys even after bending over backwards for the customer. Even if you make CSI and sell alot, salary is still low. No room for growth. Long hours. High turn around. They give everyone an assistant manager title so they don't have to pay overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the survey and make it simple. Stop punishing SA's for things they can't control (like what's in the breakroom or what the shuttle person does). The commission salary is not competitive with the area and cost of living.

    Pros

    Generally great group of IT people to work with who have solid skills and knowledge. Benefits are good, and management has shown its commitment to employees by paying bonuses missed in a down year in a following good year. Location is attractive, and the views from the top floors are a plus. There is no cafeteria on site however and the food nearby is generally expensive and subpar.

    Cons

    Requirements gathering and sign-off process is very weak, leading to lots of confusion over the project life cycle. Also, business sponsors are usually not forced to stick to initial commitments. Staff is asked to work on many things at once, with load balance usually coming as an afterthought. Compensation is average, and hours can be excessive at times. Also, the org structure is so flat it leaves little room for management opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve compensation and/or career advancement opportunities so that top staff doesn't go elsewhere.
