Information is on a need to know basis and you don't need to know.

Two factions present. Hostile work environment.

Suggestions for improvement

They gave time off for me when we adopted our baby. They generally understand life changes.

What I dislike about the company

They should offer longer maternity leave for new mothers.

Suggestions for improvement

  • There is a lack of coming to together as a region. Branches rarely work together and almost work against each other. We need to meet and interact more

What I like about the company

Everyone is very welcoming and helpful. They try to make up for the lack of training.

What I dislike about the company

Training for most jobs is very limited to none existent.
