    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Sucks.

    Team Leader (Current Employee)

    ProsAt least you have a job.

    Consbad pay, horrible hours, and just a bad experience overall.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your workers better. The "low-level" employees are the reason any of you even get paid and you treat them like crap. Paying your workers exactly minimum wage is just telling us that if you could pay us less, then you definitely would, which doesn't exactly inspire us.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Disingenuous Executive Leadership team

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsDecent insured health benefits package

    ConsArrogant, uninformed leadership team. Myopic, ethnocentric worldview. Utterly transparent, self-serving interests that protect the status-quo and upper management's many entitlements and fat paychecks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSeek first to understand - collaboration, trust and open communication are key. Actions speak so much louder than empty words and promises. Lastly, it's not the how pretty the package is wrapped, but the contents that count.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
