The organization is great. Individual offices vary in the area of competence.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Biloxi, MS

ProsPrograms are effective. Organizational leadership is top notch. The organization is very active in the community. The organization keeps up with latest software advances.

ConsLeadership in states other than Tn. may be lacking. Most employees have little work experience. The work is very demanding and the documentation can be overwhelming.

Advice to Senior ManagementWe expect our families to be proactive-let's practice what we preach. Decisions seem to be made on the fly with very little prepartion.
