Bureaucracy, Inefficiency, and Complicated

Senior Financial Controller (Former Employee)

ProsNice cafeteria. As a contractor, I could come and go as necessary. Learned a lot and was able to stretch and grow job wise.

ConsTo much over-time for full-time employees concerning tasks that are in 'hurry up and wait status'. Wait long enough and these tasks will go away and morph into something else.

Advice to Senior ManagementFreddie has a long bureaucracy which leads to inefficiency. Your a complicated natured business. You need to become more effective and need to figure out your value add as well as initiate better management processes.
