A mixed bag

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsSalary and work environment very excellent. It can be a good place to work if you land in the right department.

ConsIf an individual has a key/critical role at the company which can significantly impact the bottom-line, he/she is protected by upper management, no matter how poorly they manage their employees, how poorly they communicate and despite unbelievably unacceptable
behavior towards employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere are certain types of management styles and behaviors which are entirely unacceptable. When an HR department must get involved repeatedly, it is time to take a hard look at the situation. Additionally, each department seems to be an island with completely different ways to doing things and there is not a lot of effective communication between groups. Too much suspicion etc. A well thought out and implemented management policy would be a good idea...

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
