Worst workplace culture I've ever experienced
Drab gray depressing outdated decor and furnishings
People hate this place so much that many of them spend their lunch breaks in their car because they can't stand it inside

Advice to Management

Your lack of professionalism and big egos keep workers from performing their best. This is especially true of of lower ranking employees. Your fear tactics don't make workers respect you more. They just teach others your negative ways. I've been here 9 years and it gets worse every year. A sad pathetic bunch.
