    It's just a job. No one stays here if they have a passion for their career.

    Self-serving management that openly look out for their own self-interests. If you are good at sucking up to management and politicking then you'll do well here. If you are actually interested in doing impactful work and want to drive solutions, stay away!!

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and stop acting like you're in high school.
