"I have worked for this company for 8 years. Over the span of those years my values and the companies value began to differ. The company is starting to become a more profit focused company instead of an employee and quality focused company. This has been wearing hard on a lot of the employees, providing an overly stressful work environment. The company is at a turning point and they need to decide the direction they want to go."
