No guidance or Leadership in higher management
PACT ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee), Staunton, VAJune 4, 2014
Pros: great friendships over the years
Cons: sucks the life out of you and your family
You get thrown into new jobs with little or absolute zero training, it is a "wing it" approach. I learned how to manage and successfully run an office on my own. The management is deceptive and uncaring of any staff below them. My co-workers were the best at this office. Working in the main office was full of chaos and drama. The hardest part of the – more... day was trying to manage the seriously ill consumers. The best part of the day was when we could leave. – less
