    Great Organization with bad management

    Corporate Office (CSC) (Former Employee)

    ProsCompany culture, every other friday off, communication between executives and company is good, usually keeping them aware of whats around the corner.

    ConsManagement is usually management because of the fact they have simply been there for so long. They may know how to manage the work but not the people. Company reorganization and company cutting G&A, low moral. Many people there so long they are now comfortable and have gotten lazy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire the people you know that need to be fired and promote others within the company that deserve the chance.
