What I like

free food every now and then.

What I dislike

total sweatshop. You are not fairly compensated for the hours put in.

Suggestions for improvement

there are so many areas that are deficient it is difficult to say where to begin. But the exploitation and treatment of workers and junior management is the worst.

Company Culture

Contant backstabbing from co-managers. Will throw you under the bus instead of working with you to resolve daily issues.

Internal Communication

communication is poor


Other departments will work against you instead of with you to resolve business matters

Work-Life Balance
