Pay well but takes years off your life working here because of Management culture
Written by Manager (Former Employee) from Washington, DC on December 9, 2019
No work/life balance. No tele-work. There's a disconnect between Management and staff. Most of the areas are understaffed with a high turnover rate because of Management culture. The dedicated employees are doing jobs for multiple people instead of them hiring more staff. Employees burn out quickly because there doing several peoples jobs.
