    Poor Work Environment

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Taking care of children. Good 401k w/ match. Tuition reimbursement, wfh possibility depending on your role.

    Cons

    New leadership is trying to make CM a more modern workplace ( DEI team, recognizing MLK holiday, implementing internal staffing programs, pto donation) but they continue to not address core problems, which include racism and toxic work environments in multiple departments and lack of enforcing its own policies on workplace bullying, discrimination, and even training of personnel. Favoritism is blatant and leadership makes zero to little effort in improving the work environment. In fact, you will be labeled as a trouble maker and confrontational if you point out issues in the work environment. Also, with no paid holidays and poor pay with a minuscule raises it can easily be seen why turnover is so high.
