I have been working at Verastar full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Some of the staff try really really hard. They try to help enforce change. They try to withstand the constant pressure of the work load.

Cons

Pretty much everything else. The management have no faith in the company. Everything is a double standard. From the outside the company looks like a big shiny place to work. But when you walk through the door your met with a greating of anxiety and depression to start your day. HR don't care. And I know it's petty but the office really smells.

Advice to Management

Treat those who care with some respect. Acknowledge the ages work staff put in. You loose all your staff because of the way you treat them. Putting all the stress on your supervisors because you can't manage your team or because you prefer to sit and chat instead of doing your job.
