Good Experience - That's IT!

AP Clerk (Current Employee)
Baton Rouge, LA

ProsYou can gain some good experience in the field you want to work in, and as long as you work, your job is secure.

ConsThe management is horrible - it is all based on friendships. None of them are educated or trained to be in a managerial position. Communication with employees is minimal. Pay is not competitive. Benefit package is ridiculous. You will get hired to do one thing, but if they find out you work hard, they will overload you with work and let others slack off. No opportunity for advancement if you don't know anybody. With the recent merger, many might not even have jobs. Raises are given every other year, and bonuses are unheard of.

Advice to Senior ManagementREWARD YOUR GOOD WORKERS - OTHERWISE YOU WILL LOSE THEM :)

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
