    Great people friendly organization but competition will likely pay more for employees

    Opportunities for growth and advancement are VERY limited
    Too many levels of management.
    Poor system implementation for a company of this size
    Management is out of touch with employees.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management, get rid of the lower levels of management.
    Trust your people.
    Promote from within.
    Get rid of the bad apples. Too many current managers are terrible.
    Too many current managers have NO idea what their people do, or how to do it.
    The Houston office is a prime example of zero leadership. Idiots in charge.
    Come check out the morale. It is terrible.
