    Pros

    My manager is outstanding. Bends over backwards to help people at the company in general and focuses on doing what's right.

    Learn how to lead and listen to your teams. Encourage your directors and VPs to make tough decisions and get back to the efficiencies that made us a fortune 250 company!
