    I'm hopeful that the new CEO coming on in September will be afforded a true opportunity to make a difference for the better of the company and employees.

    Pros

    Overall not a bad place to work, benefits are good.

    Cons

    Can be stressful at times. Management top heavy. Seems like a lot of the good talent eventually leaves. Some departments have no idea what "TEAM" means. This used to really be the place to work a few years ago
