Pros

For the most part there is a great team atmosphere in the contracts dept. Managers are generally easy to approach with questions/concerns.

Cons

From word of mouth and internet, pay is below industry standards. Benefits are good but could be better

Advice to Management

I have not been here long enough and with ownership changing we will have to wait and see what the future holds

    Pros

    Try to pay well, but skimpy benefits overall.

    Cons

    No support for CRAs, workload is excessive. Work life balance goes out the door within 2 months of hire.

    Advice to Management

    CRAs may be a difficult wofkforce, but they need respect, not vilification.
