"Not a bad place to start at, but there are some slackers"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Weed out the people slacking. Your other employers will be happier when they don

Pros : The pay was above what I expected starting out in my career. I was able to work on a variety of projects and stayed busy.
Cons : They don't see the effort one puts forth as an individual. One of the individuals on my team was a real slacker, but he got just as much recognition on the project as the rest of us who were putting in a couple extra hours.
