"Lack's Leadership"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Management needs to get on top of things and schedule weekly or possibly even bi weekly meetings to keep everyone on task and make sure that deadlines are met.

Pros : I found the starting pay to be excellent. The hours and availability was very flexibility in terms of when you want to work which I enjoyed.
Cons : There is a real lack of leadership at this firm. Everyone seems to be off doing their own thing regardless of deadlines or who might need help. Too much gossiping occurs as a result as well.
Current or former employee? : Former Employee
