    Old School Thoughts and Processes

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere is great potential with this company. The company has great ideas about new projects along with partnerships for the future.

    ConsThe old school culture of work hard with no work life balance. The thought of your only working hard only when you get down an dirty, regardless of title. The stifle creativity and does not build any time of team/family atmosphere. Teams are not set up for success

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo build a more balance team with skill sets to make sure people compliment each other. To move forward in this work world in the future you have to look outside the box.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
