    There are great perks and an wonderful international team.

    Pros

    Was a great job enjoyed the people. Mgmt doesn't seem to be what it use to. Like most pressure from above

    HR doesn't mean what it sounds like. HR like in most companies is not looking there to help employees but protect company

    Advice to Management

    Push back on sr Mgmt on decisions made . Share holders don't make the company run employees do and will with a little support
