    Nepotism and political interests: More than average.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Edinburg, TX

    ProsMost jobs are laid back. Great for those without high aspirations.

    ConsIf you want to shine, this is not the place to be.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet hiring managers know they should not have people already lined-up for a job, especially a friend or family. This happens really often and top management does nothing about. And when I mean nothing I mean zero, null, nada.

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