Suggestions for improvement

  • Streamline paperwork. Sometimes you end up doing the same things several times because of extra paperwork.

What I like about the company

People tend to stay at this company for several years before leaving.

What I dislike about the company

They could do a better job in communication between higher level and lower level employees. Some people feel left out and like they ""are the last to know"".
