    Instability!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsDecent Pay, Great Benefits, Very exciting business to be in.

    ConsCareer growth is directly tied to relationships, not performance or contributions. Senior Leadership is very disconnected from the day to day operations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFar too many managers/directors are decent individual contributors, but terrible managers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
