Wish I still worked there

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Kennebunk, ME

ProsGroup management was quite good. While human , they tried to strike a balance between company needs and employee needs. Group dynamics were very well managed and I really felt to be part of the team even as a contract worker.

ConsHr needs some work but to be fair so do most big companies. Although there were some shady goings on, I can also say I always felt safe to speak my mind. As is the case in most companies currently there is a perception that employees are interchangeable so a new one at lower pay is always as good as the current one if they have same qualifications. What isn't taken into consideration is the amount of efficiency gained while working there. As a result the individual group managers take a performance hit when people are replaced.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't let accountants run your company, while giving group managers more hiring power may slightly increase payroll , the gain in productivity will be well worth it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
