    Pros

    Good pay, decent benefits, caring front line coworkers. You are part of a company where you feel you are touching lives.

    Cons

    Inept management. The office politics are dysfunctional and rampant. Human Resource department is incapable of making strong decisions. I have witnessed subordinates disrespecting their managers and nothing happens to them. My manager was the most difficult I have ever had... I basically called him on it because I had too much self respect to allow them to continue to mistreat me. It is known in the division that several managers are bullies and nothing happens to them. Do not believe what you hear or see....

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to buy employees loyalty and respect with company luncheons and parties. Make a decision and stick with it. Get rid of the prickly managers that seem to go out of the way to do something improperly in order to play political games. Overall if you as senior management do not see this on the front lines... you are blind.

    Long hours and environment was not all pleasant.

    Management seriously miscalculated their timing on expanding their business. Communication between the management and the employees were not clear either.
