    Not the family it once was.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosmy job is interesting in itself, the work is challenging & varied. I work from home & deal directly with customers. The pay scale is competitive with decent benefits.

    ConsThe management is dictatorial and adversarial. The corporate culture is arrogant, with little regard for customers' needs. Our internal departments have become silos, best to stay out of head office.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMorale is at an all time low, time to step up to the plate & make this company truly customer centric again.

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