  • 09.May 2017
  • Employee

Suggestions for improvement

  • Consider investing more in current employee base rather than always hiring and promoting from outside the organization.

What I like about the company

The work atmosphere is good; location is convenient to living in North Dallas area. Also, pay was competitive to the market.

What I dislike about the company

Opportunity for training and learning new skills is very limited. Approach is to hire from outside or offshore technical work.
