Would give it a Zero if possible.

ProsCompensation and benefits are higher than scale. Brand new facilities make for an enjoyable experience on the surface. The company tries to hire good looking people, so there's that.

ConsCheck your soul at the door. If you have any idea about value proposition, you will hate this company. The most highly political place I've ever seen. Poor communications.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to come together to form a company wide strategy. "Making the most money possible" does not count as a strategy. Most senior level managers will not make a decision due to this lack of corporate strategy... or they may just be happy to collect a paycheck and would hate to draw attention to themselves for being incompentent.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Proceed with caution

ProsCompensation can be good but you have to sacrafice values and work life balance to get to that point.

ConsIncompetent middle management, no opportunities for growth, highly political work environment and unethical leadership.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart training your people rether than promoting them. Take responsibility for lack of leadership and hold middle management and sales representatives accountable for unethical behavior instead of rewarding it. Think with your head, instead of letting your ego guide you in decision making.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
