  • Haven’t really been there long enough to really understand what needs to change. Love the work life balance. Should offer more opportunities to work from home.

What I like about the company

Been with this company a short time but impressed with their he diversity. They seem to genuinely care about their employees and have an excellent work life balance which is very important to me.

What I dislike about the company

Department I am in is a little disorganized but that is due to a major transaction occurring recently and they are still trying to figure out how to account for the new companies purchased and what work should be brought to the Houston office.
