Suggestions for improvement

  • The improvements that I would make is the lack of communication. Management tend not to pass any information down about vacation time and sick time.

What I like about the company

Great place to work at. Easy to get to work from train and then by bus. Very flexible hours and easy shifts to acquire. There is a lot of opportunity to be made in the company. There is a lot of benefits for full time employees. Parking is easy to access in Boston late at night but not in the morning.

What I dislike about the company

The most part I disapprove about the company is the lack of communication between the employees and management. There is no communication and no information passed down. Employees has to go to human resources to get the information about time off and sick time.
