Some complaints we have heard about our practices and policies:

  • Climbing stairs (with training bags sometimes) to get to the office (we’re on the second floor).
  • Most of your time will be spent in the office, at least in the first 6 months.
  • During crunch times, the work-week might stretch to 60 hours or more, resulting in late nights or lost weekends. This can happen several times each quarter.
  • New hires sometimes have lots of ideas on how to change things, but many of these are deemed unsuitable by senior management. It can be frustrating.
