Good place to work

Director (Current Employee)
Cleveland, OH

ProsDay to day work was challenging, with new projects and business areas providing ample opportunities for significant contributions and recognition. Management supportive of work/life balance.

ConsBenefits (retirement, health care) were slashed as the company struggled a number of years ago, in spite of management promises to maintain these for established employees and retirees.

Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership is not just decision-making. It is also about your employees knowing that they will be treated at least as well as investors. Respect. Honesty. Commitment.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
