"Great clients, great teammates"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

HR or management teams need to focus on keeping everyone there really top notch and do away with the poor performers.

Pros : This place has gotten better over the years, and the team focus is really the best I have ever seen, great benefits too.
Cons : A bad apple can get within the ranks and try to spoil the rest. I think a system of report the bad fruit could be installed within the business system here.
