"Draining"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

More advancement opportunities need to be offered and the environment more structured to improve the workers there would be wonderful.

Pros : The place is large and has many clients so the work is always there. Some team members are on task all the time.
Cons : I felt my time here is tedious and draining. Working here for over 10 years and with little advancement make me feel I am not deemed worth.
