    Not forthright

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThere are no positives to working for this company. They do not care about their employees. The pay is minimal and they do not care how they treat you or what they say to you.

    ConsWork 12 hour days 7 days a week. The company only cares about if they meet deadlines. They absolutely do not care about workers' health or whether they are fair in their treatment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest

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