    Pros

    If Westchester County or in CT and want to work in NYC...you probably have to rely on MNR You could have a long career

    Cons

    the most diverse group is: the HR department if you're a women in management: good luck it's an old boys club I personally heard some exclusion stories and things made to be more difficult This place feels like a cultural throw-back to the 1950s

    Pros

    Benefits, decent salary, interesting coworkers.

    Cons

    Even senior staff members treated like minimum wage workers. No flexibility. Managers do trust their staff which is ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    If you are hiring staff with a proven track record let them do their jobs. Stop treating then like children.
