    2) Starting salary for new hire from school is $65,000 with $10,000 sign up bonus for HB facility and $65,000 flat for KM facility which is $5000 more than other companies in San Diego.

    Cons

    1)You have to have a family member in Upper management in order to move up the ladder otherwise you will be spinning your wheels and wasting your time.

    2) 90% Managers are not qualified for their positions. (They either dont have higher degrees or their degrees are from online universities)

    3) They need to hire better HR reps. The director of HR and all her assistance are not qualified for their positions. They need to be sent to school to take more HR related courses.

    4) There is no training and lots of tribal knowledge.

    5) Poor Management

    Advice to Management

    To learn more about leadership and the ones that dont have degrees go back to school and get a degree from an established school not online schools
