    Pros

    Good benefits and pay. New building in Fort Mill is nice with gym, cafeteria, and walking trails around a wonderful lake.

    Cons

    This is a company that is past its peak which is in management
    disarray that is rapidly spiraling downward in a cut throat culture. Low digital intelligence which is questionable the company will be around in the next five years.

    This week, they secretly installed motion detectors under everyone desk to check on attendance. Mind blowing!!!

    Advice to Management

    Fix your working environment quickly or risk loosing your top talent
