    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    benefits are good. but not available to all employees.

    Cons

    not a place where you can learn or develop, some departments were better than other. I was told we were there to be productive, not to make friends.

    Advice to Management

    check HR policies and conduct, Interviews should not include marital status and reason for divorce. employees from all departments need respect, not just the selected ones.
