Suggestions for improvement

  • I think the HR department needs to move a little faster in terms of hiring.

What I like about the company

I've been able to use the skills I learned through my education as well as learn new ones for my job. Management has been understandable when issues have come up (such as needing a day off with little notice, working from home when needed).

What I dislike about the company

Changes do take a while to take affect, which can limit growth and development.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Fire a lot of incompetent managers

What I dislike about the company

They do not base merits on performance. It is where you come from Venezula and Tulsa as well extreme favoritism. Who's butt you kiss would be the perfect analogy.
