Office Manager (Current Employee)
Fort Collins, CO

ProsFreedom when letting non-essential personnel go, competitive with similar firms, staff personnel treated appropriately most of the time.

ConsHired some people with issues as support personnel.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou can and should compensate staff better then field personnel. Field personnel are (not to be rude, but it's true) expendable and shouldn't be compensated more then $12/hr. I'm not going to cut my bonus just to accommodate these people. The world needs ditch-diggers too.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
