    Cons

    -some projects go on for months, though work on a 10 on, 4 off schedule, so you can still see family

    Would not recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Decent benefits. Somewhat flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Lots of promises for opportunities when hired, but you'll never see them. Expect to be pigeon-holed into a rigid system of work for a single client without opportunity for advancement. Unreasonable last-minute changes and revisions to previously-approved work are extremely common but could easily be avoided if communication were better (or existed at all). Communication here honestly could not be worse. Upper management does not relay vital information to employees lower on the totem pole, nor do they apparently relay info to one another. Meetings are redundant and lead nowhere. Solutions to problems are proposed and then nothing is done to implement those solutions and everyone wonders why the problem still exists. Big problems with elitism of the upper management. Underlings are treated poorly and with no respect. On top of no regard for ridiculous amounts of re-work, a company retreat was planned on the day of a major report due date, so while upper management went and played, lower status employees had to stay and finalize. Lots of "woke-ism" in the company culture and upper management makes it very clear what side of the political spectrum they fall on. Company-wide emails were sent regarding white guilt and other inane virtue signaling.

    Pros

    Unfortunately, there aren't any pros about this company.

    Cons

    Company is losing employees fast. Hostile and toxic environment. Supervisors bully employees to get what they want. Frowned upon if you don't work 60+ hours a week. Absolutely no communication among staff. Absolutely no diversity in the workplace. Innovation is not welcome. Unable to acquire new clients.
