Company culture

There was a food truck picnic that took place this summer & a little event held by staff during the solar eclipse.

Support from Management

There is transparency in what is expected & also room for discussion.

Level of Autonomy

All tasks are assigned to be completed individually and include daily reports to track progress.

Office/Work Environment

Overall heating & A/C is good. There's a convenience store downstairs that sells blankets & hoodies for cold-sensitive employees. Those with light-sensitivity have the option to install leaf shades (IKEA's leaf canopy) into the cubicle at no additional cost.

As a contractor career development is for me to manage, not my employer.

I'm a contractor so I don't expect security. But so far company has been extending my contract.
