A sad former employee woefully posted on social media addressing her experience with the institution, she wrote " Company has no regard for the employees' wellbeing. No work-life balance. Managers expect staff to work well beyond 8 hours without overtime pay. Only lunch break in between 8 hours. It is a concrete Jungle where you should always watch you back.
