    EXTREMELY hierarchical organization, massively disorganized, upper management out to lunch

    Pros

    Some very compassionate, intelligent people work here. Great place to learn if you have a good manager.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy is intense. Most team members are incredibly overqualified and underpaid, I've seen many good people leave. Constantly new rollouts of comp plans or protocols for how to do things, created by people who aren't doing it themselves, so they don't work, hence revising every quarter. Medical benefits are meh.

    Advice to Management

    Judge people by character and their actions, not by their current title with the company.
