    I have been working at CVR Associates full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Opportunities to learn new tasks. Technology is good. Room for promotions. Provides nice departmental outings. Work locations are accessible by public transportation.

    Cons

    No ongoing training (for staff and supervisors). Leadership has very little communication with staff, so when issues come up, lack of knowledge breeds negativity. HR needs to be more of a support.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership should communicate more often with staff. Treat all staff fairly and professionally. Invest in consistent training and updated materials. Ongoing training for supervisors.
