    Nice benefits, especially health insurance, prescription plan, & 401k

    Unethical & discriminatory actions from top down.

    Advice to Management

    Do some spring cleaning & oust the bad eggs who have been with Devereux too many years. These individuals can easily hop into a completely different role, despite having no formal trainint. Being a "lifer" at Devereux is not a substitute for the appropriate credentials , which the external candidates possess, yet NEPOTISM is alive & well at Devereux.
