Generally Unappreciated Employee (Former Employee)
Kennett Square, PA

ProsThe hourly workers and temps were really nice and down to earth. Very smart and talented people who care about doing the right thing. Not much backstabbing or gossip out of that lot.

ConsIt seemed to me that things were moving in a very regimented, corporate direction. Out was free thinking and creativity. In was new management from HQ and "this is how you should think, this is how you should feel".And LOT'S of doublespeak. I'm actually GLAD they asked me to leave because I may not have on my own. It seemed to me like a company (or at least a division) being run into the ground by management.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest. Stop with the whole "I can't do anything to help you because THEY won't let me"
 charade. It's obviously not a company that cares about it's employees so why portray it that way?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
