    Political. More bad managers than good. Wish there was more opportunity for trainings and promotions. Update your website for the love all of things holy! It looks like its from 2001.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the pace. It is a steady place to work. Continue to listen to your employees.

    Pros

    work life balance is great. Managers help you out and will always be approachable. Very good place to start a career and learning curve will be steep.

    Cons

    Going up the ladder shall be very difficult. Very steady paced company, people probably stay longer and hiring new people will happen only if someone leaves. very resource intensive company, hence will invest in people resource only if its absolutely necessary.
