    Pittsburgh office not so good

    Anonymous (Current Employee)
    Pittsburgh, PA

    Prosgood benefits that is all

    Consterrible supervisors And uprofessionalism and terrible pay.would not recommend this company to anyone that I know the I care statement is not being followed

    Advice to Senior Managementmanagers need to learn how to interact with their employees instead of coming down on them and yelling and screaming at them when they provided no proper training.the CEO needs to look at who is running his businesses and seeing that they are driving the employees away.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
