Nice co-workers but horrible place to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsThe building was nice and so were the co-workers. There was ample, free parking available to employees. They ensured access to decent beverages. There was also a very nice healthy solutions program.

ConsEverything else was horrid: Old, outdated computers. Poor employee communication. The benefits were very expensive and not very good. The work hours were long (8-5). Management was very condescending and secretive. Policies were not implemented uniformly to all employees across the board. In general, not a very good place to grow one's career.

Advice to Senior ManagementTransparency in communications would be highly recommended. There are managers who clearly have had zero management training and should not supervise others until training has been completed. Implement more opportunities for work-life balance.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
