Suggestions for improvement

  • None come to mind. I am quite comfortable with it as it is.

What I like about the company

Management recognizes out-of-the-box ideas and lets other know about it. Several out-of-the-office employee events are hosted by the company each year, including Holiday parties and clambakes. It is one of the few companies that I have worked for that declare annual bonuses during the interview process and actually DO distribute said bonuses. Their are several levels of bonuses. There are employee referral incentives and the opportunity for enjoying the full home cable TV package for free, if one lives within the companies service footprint.

What I dislike about the company

Building temperature regulation leaves much to be desired.
