Suggestions for improvement

  • The workplace has become very complex in all departments. Would be nice to have less complexity and more ability to do fewer things well. Often times new policies or processes come out, then are forgotten about and on to something new. More consistency from upper management would be nice.

What I like about the company

Have worked here many years and been able to advance and learn. Pay is good and benefits are excellent. Always able to get additional training provided by the company. Work environment is fast paced but rewarding to be able to work alongside excellent people.

What I dislike about the company

I have nothing negative to say about this company. Work has its good and bad days but overall a quality work environment for someone who is not afraid to work hard and be productive.
