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

The place is large and has many clients so the work is always there. Some team members are on task all the time.

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.
