"Great Place, Great Management Team"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 23, 2018

Revamp the benefits to something more appealing and the place would be hands down the best out there in the metro area.

Pros : The management team is really high level people, and they have a great work ethic that is infectious to others, making everyone do more and do it better.
Cons : The benefits are a bit lacking, and the admin department seems to not pay attention to what needs to be done and to solve issues within the workforce.
Approve of the CEO[?] : Yes
Recommend this employer to a friend? : Yes
Business outlook for the next 6 months? : up
Current or former employee? : Current Employee
