Pays well but very stressful

Manager (Former Employee)

ProsVery bright creative people, always a can get it done attitude

ConsLots of politics and favortism, many folks in it for themselves with little care about what end customers really want or need, good ole boys club, operationally inefficient at some very basic levels

Advice to Senior ManagementManage for consistent true business results versus who can spin the best tale on power point

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
