Reviews

Company Culture

It's mostly positive. There are some bad apples, but that feels true everywhere.

Challenging Work

Some days provide me a good challenge. Other days are not so bad.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More accountability on doing your job and doing you job well. Not just keeping people around because they have always been there.

What I like about the company

Working my way up from an intern to a full employee.

What I dislike about the company

The way they let some people do nothing and be rewarded for it.
