Reviews

Suggestions for improvement

  • More internal evaluation. There are people not doing their job properly and are safe in the position

What I like about the company

The benefits after working for a long time are good. There is enough time off. People are friendly and kind.

What I dislike about the company

Difference in the tuition international people and American people pay. International people have sometimes 10 times the tuition of American students for graduate programs.
