      - Great work/life balance - Very friendly management - Low stress environment - Management care about employee happiness - Employee satisfaction surveys regularly - Internal facebook type community / portal -> very cool - Recent high emphasis on creating brand recognition in market


      - Pay way below industry standards - Extremely political! Favoritism is rampant and seems be the only way to move up for most - Management spy on employees by asking favored employees to look over your shoulder (I was asked to spy on others activities while I felt someone watching me - they would rather get 2nd hand info than confront you) - Management spy on your Lotus notes calendar events and check when you're online on communicator (mgmt themselves work from home whenever they please) - No coffee/tea in kitchens! Pay for own meal at team events and lunches ('very' cheap organization even when profits are high) - Time and time again people are 'thrown in front of the bus' by management and then scapegoated when things don't seem to work - someone on team gets fired/quits every month it seems - Culture of incompetence - industry best practices? let's hire 'seasoned' contractors and temps that know what they are doing! - Very slow promotions process - Top performers promoted after over TWO years! Felt sorry for them. - Technology outdated - HEAVY reliance on email and lotus notes databases. IT folks - this is a company to AVOID unless you plan on becoming useless!

        Work from home and flexible


        Working from home leaves no room for building relationships within the company

      If employers are shopping cheap, should we just apply for roles that we're less qualified for?


      Quality Assurance Associate

      I had an interview late August, sent a thank you the same day, followed up when they said they would get back to me, and then again a week later and I got no response. I gave up and they just sent me an email saying the position was on hold and they hoped to have an update at the end of the week. I'd still like to see what they might offer me so what could I say in response?



      Have you ever been asked by a recruiter to sign an nda before they can speak to you about a job they're recruiting you for? Mind you they reached out to me
