      great location nice building good office space people are friendly clear company goals

      Cons

      poor lower level management billing, collections and securities is a mess due to poor management

      Advice to Management

      Upper management is great. It's the lower level managers (admin managers) that are bad. They don't have the knowledge or the desire to assist the team, they just want to look good to upper management.
