    Does not care about employees or customers

    Program Manager (Former Employee) Paris, TN

    ProsOpportunity to assist people in our area

    ConsPeople making decisions are out of touch with the needs of the citizens of Tennessee.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConcentrate more on helping people by providing services and assistance to the people that need them especially in the rural areas where their drive times are lengthy to get to locations that can help.
    Take the time to talk to the people residing in communities where centers have closed and listen to the effects of your decisions. Learn from your mistakes.

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