Great company where pros outweigh the cons!

Senior Analyst (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

ProsFlexible environment, People are first, great atmosphere, decent pay for non-manager positions. Great career development opportunities where the sky truly is the limit at this company. It is a very rich culture.

ConsA lot of meetings and politics. You may have to filter what you say in various groups which is unfortunately considering that the right information at the right time is so vital in this industry. Job specific training is also lacking.

Advice to Senior ManagementSurround yourself with the right people when making strategic decisions!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
