Follow the Rules Only when Convenient

Operations Shift Manager (Former Employee)
Niskayuna, NY

ProsNever had a check bounce. I have heard that my bad experiences are do not exist in most of the company. Good way to get into Department of Energy (DOE) complex.

ConsNo accountability which causes problems in pretty much every area. Common practice to ignore rules because of schedule pressure or laziness. Constant struggle to take the extra 5 minutes to do the right thing.

Advice to Senior ManagementHold people accountable.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
