    Great company until 2009

    Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsThey used to promote from within and encouraged employees to stay with the company long term. They always offered stock purchase programs to employees.

    ConsIn 2009 they began laying off employees who had been with the company the longest. They did not offer any pay cuts or the possibility of remaining with a downgraded position. They destroyed the office morale of all the remaining employees.

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