    Pros

    Good company with extensive training resources. Pay & benefits average, good employee relationship policies, however not practiced at the middle-upper management levels.

    Cons

    Computer systems not user friendly, non existent on- boarding training, expectations exceeded job function training. Inexperienced & incompetent middle-upper management leaders, team work & staff development not universally applied. Did not live up to advertised culture & values.

    Advice to Management

    Solicit feedback from all levels, communication is primarily downward. You have some very self centered and vindictive management personalities, that create a hostile work environment.
