    Pros

    Nothing positive about this company. There are much better places to work. Compensation and benefits are overrated with this company.

    Currently work at the Cherry Hill location. Management style is a dictatorship. Foreign management is clueless. All the experienced employees have left or have been terminated and have not been replaced or replaced with cheap inexperienced labor.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the business before there is nothing left to sell.
