    Old Boys Club..

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNice and glitzy on the outside

    ConsIf you are not part of the Old Boys Club starting at the top who are more interested in smoking cigars, chasing young girls and filling their own pockets with all sort of side deals (which are even ripping off the Owners) you will not make a career.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet real and identify REAL talents who came thru the ranks and support those instead of showing off to low rank employees about how great the company is. A very short-lived attitude.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
