    Pros

    you get a paycheck for putting up with the above (also see below).

    Cons

    Unless you are in management, there is no good news. You are a beneath the management gods, will be trampled on, treated like you are invisible and worthless, exposed to q myriad of safety hazards most of them forced on you by management, then ignored because you are invisible and worthless in their eyes. This is a totally dysfunctional company where HR has a 50+% turnover rate, on site management is traveling, and the wannabe power mongers bully and torment the staff daily while getting blessed from above. If you are a sadist, you will love this work environment, management will reinforce how little you matter, and make sure you will have nasty drama and favoritism every day.

    Advice to Management

    Alan, you need to fire the managers in the Denver Office What they do is not management. They could be part of a dictatorship regime, because that is the working environment and culture they have created in the Denver Office. My ratings below are zero or the greatest negative number there is

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    interesting projects in interesting areas, there is however TONS of politics that senior management chooses to ignore. This hinders one from being able to focus on the right things.

    Cons

    a difficult organization to navigate, it's all about who you know and who will support you. Difficult to get the right mentors and mentorship is key to getting ahead.

    Advice to Management

    support your staff better, they are your key to growth. Find a way to be more competitive in the market place in terms of salaries and benefits.
