    Some of the employees are friendly since you need to confide in someone to handle the terrible work atmosphere. Santa Barbara is a nice place to live.


    Management is the worst negative bunch of %#@! I have ever encountered. You will hate life dealing with the overworking under appreciated stress. Management even yells (red faced) at each other before finally taking out their frustration on you and thinking that their stress will make you a fearful better employee. They are delusional which shows up in huge employee dis-satisfaction and ultimately high employee turn around.

    Advice to Management

    hurry up and get your cancer or stroke brought on by your stress. At least corporate should wake up to the blinds that this group has pulled over their eyes. Corporate should fire and discredit the entire management, but that would disperse the slime to other companies. Just keep them there and all others should avoid this company.
