What I like about the company

I have work for 11 years and have been treated fairly. The people who I work with are great and work as a team.

  • There really isn't anything to change for the better. Perhaps higher raises and lower health care costs

What I like about the company

The company I work for care about it's employees and makes sure they have resources that they need

What I dislike about the company

The only thing that I don't care about is the rising costs of health care, but the company is not completely at fault for that.
