    Pros

    They will work you if you want to be worked if they have it. They will hire anybody to work for them.

    Cons

    They love you if you can't work the slave shift hours. The doubles and triples all your days off. But as soon as you ask or request something they can't do it or if the do it. They will offer to put you at a different post and drop your pay.

    Advice to Management

    Need a whole new team people to run this company.

    Pros

    there is nothing good about working for this company

    Cons

    they hired me with the promise of pay raise and moving up and all they did was to my job description without any financial compensation, I had to report to 3 or 4 people and they all gave instructions that contradicted one another. they were never able to get their act together, after a year of complete abuse i finally asked for my raise that was promised only to get laid off .

    Advice to Management

    created a proper hierarchical management system so staff doesn't report to 15 different people.

    Pros

    This is only a resume filling company for experience.

    Cons

    Lazy management staff who lie and mislead about promotions, payrate, and company information. A high turnover rate which is shameful.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your lower ranking officers, care about their well being. Raise the payrate to fit the job description of the position. Install suggestion boxes for honest review. Follow through when your officers voice concerns without retaliation. Hire people qualified to do the job without excuses.
