    Impressive contract services company

    Senor Manager (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsGreat systems for training and developing

    ConsSome Senior Management do not seem to show the quality and skills you'd expect for a high end contract services company that seeks the quality of life for its clientele.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEvaluate your VP's and District Managers, then continue onto your General Managers and see if they are really fit for the job. This does not go to everyone, only those select few.
