    Pros

    Management in my current department is understanding of personal lifestyle's need to dictate schedule.

    Cons

    The company as a whole shows little value for employees. 401k matching is diminutive, healthcare benefits are reduced annually, and compensation is not enough to recruit or retain top talent. Raises are rare and minimal. The atmosphere is stale. Attempts to create a more community oriented environment are looked upon as a distraction by upper management. There have been far too many instances of the HR department using employee complaints to terminate reporting employees rather than looking into actual problems with management or other personnel. While there are a higher percentage of female employees, management roles are mostly held by men.

    Pros

    Nice people to work with employees only.

    Cons

    Low pay very deceitful, you are worked like a slave and the HR Team are hard to deal with and line leaders. They even insult one of my close family members that came to get me because of a emergency, Tow HR ladies took in a office and insult and humiliated her. She was very sick I quit that was enough. They have no respect for the employees at all, its felt like working on a chain gang. One line leader because i was waiting for my job to start called me a nobody and I was nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with some respect after all if not for them you would not have a job.
