    Poorly managed at every level.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNone. Don't waste your skills with them.

    ConsTerrible planning and budgeting. Ridiculous information systems. They cannot access the data needed to make straightforward business decisions. When they fail to meet their ludicrous budgets they "solve" the problem by laying off staff-- but they never seem to lay off the bozos that budgeted badly in the first place.
