    Work in a position for a week or two before you make a change that will impact the department.

    I worked at Management & Training Corp. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are better than others. Liked most of the employees

    Cons

    Director only concerned with numbers. Kept many ZT students for numbers. Same with employees. Kept 'bodies' to staff when people should have been let go. Once management didn't like you, you never went anywhere. HR was there only to follow the Director, regardless of any legality issues or state law. HR did not protect employees and I heard them giving bad advice to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Don't assume you know everything. Education does not equal experience.
