Positive experience

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Wilmington, MA

ProsVery encouraging and positive environment. Got to know other employees well and felt team spirit. Immeadiate supervisor appreciated my efforts and treatedly me fairly.

ConsAs long as everything is going great, no worries. But when things started to slide, the team disappeared. Felt abandoned at the end.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake time to figure why problems are there and work to address them if you value keeping employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
