Suggestions for improvement

  • All has been improved from moving 3 departments out of the basement which open more parking for the remaining employees and public. No more changes needed

What I like about the company

Making employees happy is key ! We started to get together after work once every 3 months and for the first time a Christmas party, last year we had an ugly sweater get together, Red Sox luncheon. Makes for a stronger bond with the employees

What I dislike about the company

Too many levels of management and power
