"The company has gone through a lot of changes with new leadership at the top. The new CEO made many changes with the company leadership by bringing in a lot of his own people. I found the turnover of the company was very high and communication from the leadership was awful."

"The new CEO (2013) is bringing great and needed changes. You might have an average or great team environment because it varies from manager to manager however you do get a wide variety of skills there. VTO options available, although few use it. And if you want to move up, you have to be in headquarters."
