This company seeks to hire fresh, young people who are willing to make around $25K. If you can stomach the pay, you might be promoted eventually. Or not. For professionals outside of the network, it is not possible to be compensated fairly until you 'pay your dues' within the company. Frustrating that there is a fair amount of talent within the company, but employees are not encouraged to rise to their potential, which would ultimately benefit the entire corporation. Upper management doesn't seem to get it. When unrealistic (below average nationally, and even locally) compensation is set, morale is low and the psyche spreads. Lower level employees are not valued, and it shows in their work.
Some talented mid level employees. Some beautiful locations.
Failure to recognize employee loyalty and talent.
