Up until 3 years ago amazing. Going public made it far too political, causing many issues with management & leadership

Pros

They work hard, but are allowed to play hard. 3 free meals/day + unlimited snacks. Great company sponsored outings!

Cons

getting very political, a lot of nepotism. Very negative vibe from employees regarding manager competency.

    Pros

    The company allowed me to achieve growth and a better willingness to learn! I was able to advance from working within groups.

    Cons

    It was under a 2 year (only) temporary contract. It gave little growth for promotion within the company. I would have loved to get hired in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep giving young adults the opportunity to work for a great company. Maybe more promotional moves will be highly appreciated!
