A great company and employees with a challenging culture for non-technical employees.

Manager (Former Employee)

ProsGood benefits, salary, workplace policies and people. A safe and conscientious company with a great record and respect for stakeholders.

ConsCorporate culture is adverse to pro-active public measures. Staffing is lean for achieving company expectations. Little or no on-boarding and little or no feedback about performance. Employees are fired or denied promotion without explanation.

Advice to Senior ManagementCorporate senior management in non-technical departments does not always understand or value the responsibilities of employees at the business unit level and should visit field offices more often and give more feedback.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
