Anyone know what that’s about in Quincy?
This used to be a company where most employees felt valued. At one time, loyalty, hard work and competence were valued and rewarded here. I wonder why it couldn't stay that way? Today this is a totally different company.

Is the rumor true they will be consolidating their offices in Quincy to save money ? They seem to have a few redundant offices in Quincy, which they could move staff into other buildings in the area

Reasons- the market, and how this company penny pinches. executives in the office talking about headcount and cost savings they need.

Or is there no need due to increased attrition?
Just leave there. I left two years ago and have a new career now. It is not worth all the complaining, they do what they do. It will never change. We were told our replacements make 4-5 grand a year for the jobs we trained them on. And they do not... — read more
