    Great People, Marginal Management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPros:

    ConsCons:
    Pay could be better but is mostly inline with competitors
    Medical and retirement benefits are not very good
    Corporate management is aloof
    Very few employee development programs

    Advice to Senior Managementrecommendation to corporate management is to take more interest in smaller contracts. Also work on implementing professional development programs for employees so they can progress within the company and not feel like they have to leave in order to learn new skills.
