Pros: coffee machines
Cons: very work driven, not a good work/life balance, don't really have great benefits package. pretty par for the course. for a single, it's 200/month with a 500$ deductible.
I enjoyed working with my coworkers and felt like a part of a team. If you take the time and invest it, you'll succeed, but expect to spend a lot of time outside work to do so, for those who are average Joe's like me.
Now the downside:
Stated that they would mentor me, but took me submitting my feedback review (30day) to get them to even listen when I had been struggling. After that it improved some.
If you want to be successful, expect to do a lot of work outside of work. Projects can be worked on for months then scrapped because it's not working right and then you're pushed back to square one.
However, there is very little advancement within the company. It looked like there was some lateral movement, later on if desired, but if you're looking for vertical mobility and moving through the ranks, then I suggest you pass up Empire in favour of bigger company.
I wouldn't work here again. There's better companies out there, but there are worse ones.
