    Great place to excel if you don't mind playing a cut-throat corporate game and taking advantage of others.

    Advice to Management

    Lacks candid communication and human-to-human interactions. Instead, bus-throwing and backstabbing excelerate people through the ranks. Hard work and positive results play a distant second to politics.
