Suggestions for improvement

  • While the company is very accomodating and does provide parental leave, and accomodations for nursing mothers, the ability to transition to part time or shared schedule work would be beneficial to retain more parents. Part time and shared work schedules are officially supported, but in practice are very hard to have approved.

What I like about the company

I really like the company culture in terms of other employees being welcoming and friendly. There are many ways to connect at the office through on-site sports, as well as numerous outside of work events. I enjoy working with my coworkers so it literally feels like I spend time with my best friends every day.

  • General improvements would be a higher payrate, but the rest is very nice!

What I like about the company

Lucky to work for a great Manager who understands teamwork and work/life balance. We do overtime and things needed to succeed as a team for overall goals, but also have even time outside of work stuff.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Improve support for alternative work schedules to accommodate families. The policies allow for it, but is difficult to implement in practice. Employee retention is a big gap right now, and measures to retain late 20-early 30 employees are non-existent.

What I like about the company

Reasonable benefits, decent time off allowances, and ability to develop within the company.
