    Don't be fooled in the interview

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsHigh staff turnover can allow individuals a ton of experience and quick promotions
    The members of the association are very dedicated and assist tremendously

    ConsExecutive level management needs to be completely restructured. Those that are currently in charge are resistant to change and allow unprofessional behavior by Senior Managers to go unaddressed. Good workers are constantly driven away by the toxic work environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAddress concerns raised by staff or leave the organization

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