    I worked at Cornell Companies

    Pros

    -Easy work
    -Semi-decent pay
    -Easy interview process

    Cons

    -Impossible to use PTO
    -Favoritism
    -Benefits are a bit of a joke
    -Little upward mobility
    -Understaffed and underfunded
    -Bad management
    -Lack of training provided

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Approve PTO once in a while. People do need time off for important things from time to time. Also, train people to do their jobs and stop hiring any idiot off the street.
