"Pay not awful, team members good"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Give the people more money, and energize the place. I think more energy involved with create an energized place would help a lot.

Pros : Worked here for 8 years and have learned a lot within the place. The team as a whole is great and very fun to be around.
Cons : I think the pay is on the lower scale of things, and sometimes the energy surrounding everyone is low.
Current or former employee? : Current Employee
