    Stable Company, Great Compensation, Room For Growth

    Dec 28, 2022 - Staffing Coordinator in Fort Worth, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    No one is micromanaged, nor do they have the time or desire to. After my first three months, it was time to have career trajectory conversations with my boss. D&I is being woven into the fabric of the company slowly. Everyone is extremely specialized in their knowledge but very open to giving advice and help whenever needed. Generous PTO, Sick Time and other benefits.

    Cons

    The demographics. Most senior and upper-level positions are older, Caucasian Cis Males.
