    Pros

    I can't think of one good thing about working for this company.

    Cons

    They take over the companies they partner with, laying off hundreds of local employess. They only worry about the all mighty buck instead of their employees and the local economies they are damaging. Upper management in CT. never takes the time to know the employees in their smaller companies.

    Advice to Management

    Do what is right. Not just what makes you more money. Greed will eventually be your down fall.
