Management at Phipps works on favoritism, not the quality of work produced. If they like you, they will open doors for you, if they find a reason to dislike you after you've been hired, what you'll experience is impulsive senior management who makes decisions without obtaining all the information required.
There you will find a claim to work for the community, but it is the mouth that is speaking, not the heart. Managers that find it difficult to say good morning or afternoon speak volumes about their feelings in the midst of their silence.
Management could treat the employees better and not act like they are better than everyone else.
