Suggestions for improvement

  • Settle on your structure and retrain the people you've already invested in. Work on job security

What I like about the company

I was able to take classes that should have helped me to do my job better.

What I dislike about the company

The constant recycling of employees. There are at least 3 major layoffs a year followed by a spurt of hiring. Does not make sense and makes employees feel that they are under the gun and could be walked out the door at any second.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management could be more supportive to their employees & provide guidance to move to the next level, rather than scoot someone from manager to manager & stay at the same grade level for 8 years.

What I like about the company

Having dogs come to the workplace was therapeutic to people that like dogs. Good benefits, ESPP, and 401k

What I dislike about the company

Reduction in Forces are disruptive to the people that remain at the company and feels bad to see prior jobs re-posted a month later.
