    Pros

    great resume builder, extreme expose if using this opportunity to better your career. the only thing to use this company for is to give your career a kick start. overall turnover for every position is about 1 year.

    Cons

    - when its busy, its BUSY. When its slow.. you can literally watch Netflix at your desk.
    - Zero upwards mobility
    - Very small salary (they know people will want to work for them for the name, and use it to their advantage). Starting salary is as low as $35,000 even when you're working directly under the President
    - terrible benefits, there are no perks at all, overall very disappointing experience and wouldn't recommend it to anyone i know

  3. A good stepping stone atleast

    Pros

    Good resume booster, after working there you can pretty much work anywhere

    Cons

    Everyone is under paid and over worked, There is not sense of community at headquarters, and everyone is very high strung

    Advice to Management

    Build a sense of community, add more staffing and pay people what they deserve!

    Pros

    Great resume booster to say you've worked here. Many know it is a sweatshop so they know you are a hardworker and generally pretty smart.

    Cons

    I worked during the period of layoffs in 2009, so my experience may have been different than others due to the economic crisis the company was facing and the extra stress on the employees as a result of the layoffs.

    Generally, a back-stabbing, nasty culture. Expected to work 12-14 hours a day, churning out work, with no thanks or benefits.

  7. the experience has been very trying and hard work

    Pros

    the interaction with good people , the hours are pretty reasonable there is not to many pros to my department pressently working

    Cons

    the job i have is very under paid hourly no interaction with supervisors only unless there is a problem or complaint no kind of way to be towards employees working hard

    Advice to Management

    my advice is to make time to say good job or create advancement for people to come up with company and pay raises could be nice
