A nightmare

Executive Assistant (Former Employee)
New York, NY

ProsThe office space is very nice and for the most part, your colleagues are pleasant, smart and helpful to you.

ConsThe workload is completely unmanageable and even though you have vacation time, you're told you're unable to take it. Unfair.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't lie to employees - tell the truth during the interview process and during employment - everything was a lie.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
