    I enjoy my job.

    Executive Staff Assistant (Current Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsI very much enjoy my job. The majority of my coworkers are enjoyable. The work is interesting. Advancement is encouraged. Training is available. The pay is competitive in most ways. The benefits are great.

    ConsThere are done people who have had their jobs for a long time and do not perform. It is not often that people who underperform or who are no longer qualified for their work receive any sort of corrective action.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
