Great coworkers, lack of proper staffing
Manager (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILNovember 4, 2016
The people and clients we work with are great, and there is a lot of opportunity for advancement. However, they do not prioritize proper staffing and think that everyone should just work evenings and weekends for little pay. If the profit margins aren't good, they will sacrifice great employees and burn them out.
