Hated it!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Minneapolis, MN

ProsThey have a lot of happy hours and the salary.

ConsSome of the worst Senior Management I've ever encountered. They have no clue how to give good, smart direction or utilize their employee's best talents. Generally, you have two maybe three superiors that are never on the same page when giving direction, which makes one spin his/her wheels and impossible to do a good job. They make going into work everyday extremely a job in itself.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a serious look at the way you run things internally because nobody is happy there. It's just a job to them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
