I picked this one mostly because it's less bureaucratic than some of the other ones I've been considering.

Now, the bad news. They are utterly disorganized, chaotic, and often don't know what anybody else is doing.


Well, sadly, the bureaucracy comes about from attempts at organization. The reason you have to fill out 3 forms and check with 5 people is to ostensibly avoid the confusion and chaos you are finding at this place.

It's a trade off you will have to make a decision on.
