Tower is a joke!!!

I’ve only been here at the tower now for 2 days and I already can’t stand it here. Who thought it was a great idea to put the sales team in one room and put us in cubicles? I tried talking to multiple customers today from my desk and couldn’t hear... —  read more

Lesser Beings

In a move of profound and towering stupidity, feckless management has decided to mothball a perfectly suited and less expensive facility to consolidate personnel into a new, shiny, and more expensive location. The belief that all of us lesser beings... —  read more
