Suggestions for improvement

  • Overtime pay granted more lieniently without being abused. Cheaper benefits packages. More employee encentives.

What I like about the company

Fair work environment. Outstanding accommodations for out of county employees. Comprehensive training programs. Additional training courses available as well. Good atmosphere with friendly people. With such a large number employees, you are bound to clash with some, but overall many friendly faces. Fair pay.
A lot of talk about advancement within the company. I have no experience with this, but I am looking forward to finding out. They speak a lot about hiring from within.

What I dislike about the company

Some communication issues between support staff. Could use improvement in collaborating information accurately.

Overtime pay. Should be more willing and flexible towards the employees that want to work more.
