    Great pay and benefits. Also 7500 in tuition reimbursement.

    Manager and Supervisor take things personally and change rules often. Sometimes treat employees like they aren't adults.

    Treat all employees like you value them. When people feel valued the go above and beyond the call of duty.

    Pros

    The environment was very professional and it was the best company by far that I have worked for.

    Cons

    I worked in the mental health & substance abuse department and at times it was very challenging speaking with people who were going through many difficult times in life but rewarding because I got to help them.

    Advice to Management

    To keep a professional relationship with all employees and never bring personal issues to work.
