Good people in the office to work with.

Potential……

ConsManagement....top leadership is really lacking.
Very little in terms of communication or direction.
Dysfunctional
They do not understand performance management or how to train and develop talent. If you meet someone at the company with good skill sets, they acquired those skills from somewhere else.
High turnover. They do not track it.
Clear objectives are tough to come by for performance reviews.
You will likely not grow professionally.
Short sighted in decision making for both people and the business in general. Poor use of resources.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
