Eco-consciousness

No recycling program

Workplace Safety

No. This job was very political and if you were on the wrong side of the politics....well then you got pushed aside. I also suspected corruption, originating from my manager, but spread throughout the whole department.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Refrain from corrupton.

What I like about the company

Nothing

What I dislike about the company

It was corrupt, as least my many in the department, up to and including the management.
