    Decent starting point - but no career path

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFlexible schedule and work from home

    Conssalary well below industry standards, no room for advancement, does not promote from within

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is so much talent already here but it is constantly overlooked. Managers are brought in from outside the company while the best talent is left unnoticed. Employees leave here and are immediately recognized as top performers by their new employers. You guys are really losing out.
