Never thought of leaving until...

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsCan be a great job under the right up-line management team. The pay and benefits are competitive. WH can give you a sense of feeling like a part of something.

ConsThe demands are unrealistic unless you are single without children, not dating, and no current living relatives. Sometimes the up-line management is ridiculous. They have no idea how to do their job. People get promoted because of degrees, not due to how well they manage a unit. Some management think they are in the Army and cuss and talk to people defrading, and believe this to be okay. It is unprofessional and humiliating, yet it happens on a regular basis.

Advice to Senior ManagementI quit trying to give advice after many years of attempts.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
