  1. New leadership is all about what is best for them personally; NOT about doing the right thing for the company

    Pros

    Company used to be one of the best places to work with leaders that truly cared about the employees and doing the right thing no matter what

    Cons

    New top leadership is only out for their personal success and doesn't own up to anything bad that they have caused. Shady, egomaniacs with no integrity that are screwing people over. You know who you are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The new President is the worst thing to ever happen to that company. Too big of an ego, not enough character. Get rid of him. Enough said.

    Pros

    No one knows what they are doing so you can get lost doing nothing.

    Cons

    So many people are bad at their jobs that it's almost silly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please please hire better staff.
