Current Employee

HR needs to devise a plan to alleviate some of the stress involved, since everyone is hyper focused on moving forward, we could lose some people.

The pay is on the top tier and the team can be very focused to finish the job quickly

Overworked employees do exist here, and some are a bit strung out with the workload at certain points in the year.
