    I worked at TheLadders full-time

    Pros

    - Snacks, one lunch and breakfast paid for
    - Free iPad and iPhone (department dependent)
    - Great friendly intelligent people to work with

    Cons

    - Mainly self-teaching, very little suggestions towards courses externally or online
    - Lack of awareness of career progression
    - Little personal feedback into how well you're doing or not
    - Tight, often in-achievable deadlines as management lacks an understanding of technological processes and time it takes to build something or research
    - Some employees come in late, leave early and take long lunch breaks - can be frustrating if you have work to get done and are relying on those not in office
    - Unlimited holiday - not really unlimited. People have been told to be more conscious if taking a large amount of time off. Some don't take enough off. Maybe better to have a generous fixed set of days on offer and force people to take it as everyone needs a break. Expect to work through bank holidays.
    - Not always enough time given to learn a technology and then build it - needs factoring in to project management times.
    - Quite a few firings - you never know nor feel you are safe in your job, particularly with little feedback provided
    - Often management changes their mind and lacks employee input and feedback - only senior management deals with that

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - For innovative ideas listen to employees - they may have better ideas than you.
    - Fix holiday times to a generous set number of days i.e. 25+ and ensure employees take it
    - Create a feedback structure for employees to know how they are doing in the company and that they are not about to be fired
    - Listen to tech more in regards to realistic time projections
    - Encourage courses and testing out newly learnt skills on the job.
