Disappointing

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsExperience. Will hire out of college. Immediate supervisors are excellent.

ConsManagement has no respect for employees. View us as disposable and make sure we know it. Work gets in the way of personal life often. Rampant favoritism and most peoplearent comfortable taking concerns to hr on site. Often times nothing happens even if it's a repeated complaint by multiple people..

Advice to Senior ManagementLeave and let someone better suited take over.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
