    Has good intentions, but....

    Account Executive (Former Employee) Chevy Chase, MD

    ProsGreat benefits, interesting coworkers, and nice office space. Hours are very reasonable. Not a difficult job.

    ConsLack of communication about strategic vision from upper management. Feel like a cog in the wheel too often and lacks development programs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward employees so they want to stay. Way too often you see your colleagues leaving for better opportunities when they would have stayed for more responsibility or money.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
