    Treat front-line employees with respect.

    Senior Project Manager (Former Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsGood compensation, good company values, diverse workforce. Great health care provided to all employees. Good opportunities to work at multiple facilities.

    ConsSenior management not in tune with how many of their front-line managers use intimidation, not respect to manage their employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide a "safe" environment with front-line employees to express their concerns regarding their work environment and then you will have employees who will commit to the success of your organization.

    Great benefits and employee appreciation; variety of manager types - most are great.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsClean environment; nice offices; good pay.

    ConsGood luck trying to get a vacation. The work piles up and you are just as exhausted when you return as when you left.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease continue to hire from TEMP agencies - it's too difficult to get in through the "regular" app route.
