    Pros

    Pretty relaxed setting

    Pros

    Good benefits, first year is expensive for healthcare but goes down after that.
    WFH flexibility.

    Cons

    Terrible culture, you are constantly drowning in paper, tools and systems are very outdated, policies are all over the place, never enough admin support, 70+ jobs per person with so much paperwork that you never have a chance to even interview candidates. Gossipy environment that is left unchecked by leadership. Any process improvements or changes to the environment are strategically killed by departments that point fingers at each other for responsibility unto infinity until you just give up. Complain complain complain --no changes or proactive vision. HR turnover is over 90% every two years- do not work here unless you want to push paper and lose sight of your career.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the toxic employees and start from scratch.
