    Pros

    Phenomenal company that has an employee first mentality. Very good transparency. Great leadership that doesn't micromanage and allows you to succeed in your own way.

    Cons

    Like most large companies, changes in policy can take a long time. Going through appropriate channels to get tasks completed can also delay resolution.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to motivate by finding the good balance between complete autonomy and micromanaging.

    Pros

    Great peers, great products, professional atmosphere, open environment concept. Flexible work environment depending on your function and boss.

    Cons

    Doesn't promote from within, limited opportunity for growth and learning, internal application process doesn't look at qualifications of applicants but rather who is liked regardless of qualifications.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating those on rotational program like they walk on water with no experience. Promote from within, and that doesn't mean giving more work at same pay level. Value (truly) the experience and background people bring to the table. They are missing the boat on leveraging experiences of their workforce.

    Pros

    if you get in with the right people you can make 50-80k a year.
    pass a urine analysis and youre hired.

    Cons

    rampant cronyism, unrealistic demands on the human body, imaging being in a boxing match for 10 hours or running a marathon for 10 hours, profit sharing nonexistent, theres a large population of non-English speakers that are not expected to work, rampant violence, drugs, corruption, and trading sexual favors for advancement. the physical demands are completely unrealistic, the benefits are unaffordable, turnover is 97%, union is impotent

    Advice to Management

    pay a decent wage and you wont have to hire 300 people a month to find suckers to do 25 dollar an hour work for 13 dollars. require reading and speaking English. stop the cronyism and promote on merit.

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, ability to work from home, does alot for the community

    Cons

    expects more work from less headcount, not truthful with employees, does not treat everyone with the same fairness

    Advice to Management

    upper management needs to evaluate lower management better. When there is excessive turn over in a department, it's time to look at how that department is managed.
