Good stability, big company "drink the KoolAid" mindset.

Operations (Former Employee) Providence, RI

ProsThe company is extremely stable, and if you tow the company line you'll have a job there forever.

ConsTowing the company line. I was told to agree with senior management even if my years of business experience told me different action was necessary. Agility and innovation in management are not this company's strong points.

Advice to Senior ManagementLooking into what individual managers are doing to ensure that their numbers and paperwork meet expectations may yield surprising results. Emphasis is not on good business, but a good show for the stockholders.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
