    Stable company with salary commensurate with industry

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCompany is relatively stable except for the recession period in 2009 when the economy dropped off a cliff. Work-life balance is adequate at least for salaried employees.

    ConsCommunication from upper management is lacking at times but it is a challenge when you are spread across several continents and locations across mainland USA. Also frequent management restructuring results in lack of continuity.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Uncertain future while in Chapter 11
