Advice to Senior ManagementI believe upper management is doing a great job and they are all extremely friendly if you give them a chance and dont meet them with the assumption they are "above" your level; they might be in pay grade a position but they are all people nonetheless. They put in more hours then anyone in this company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
