"No Room To Move"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 23, 2018

You need to be able to start seeing through who the pretenders are, and who the contenders are, because there are an abundance of both.

Pros : They will pay you well, and your home/work ratio will definitely be tolerable. Benefits are generous and so is vacation.
Cons : I had absolutely nowhere to go once I was in there. There are very few promotions, and the ones that do happen are not based on merit.
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
