Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

The 3rd largest employer in RI. Business grows but headcount doesn't so if you like being buried with no direction this is the place for you.

Cons

Management has no idea what employees do. Unprofessional behavior abounds with no accountability or ownership. The same poor performing people work there year after year and the good ones leave or are let go. If you approach a better way or request deadlines from others you are deemed negative. How bad is it that everyone has set their email up with "read receipt" ? It is a boy's club with no leadership what so ever. Finger pointing and personalities run this company. Too bad.

Advice to Management

Clean house, starting with the top. Learn what the employees do. You'll have a new found respect and understanding of who really drives the revenue.
