It felt exhausting to be so unproductive.

Vice President (Former Employee)

ProsThe company is involved in a lot of different industries so there is some exposure into many areas of the economy. There is also a wealth of market data and trending to dig into.

ConsIt is very hard to get anything new off the ground. New initiatives are met with resistance especially if there is a need for new resources. Management is focused on cutting costs and gradually people have been purged from the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementI don't believe leadership is managing for long-term growth. Instead, they are managing for near-term margin so the PE firms can sell out (and so senior management can as well).

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
