"Challenging place to work, training"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Quicker upward pace in advancing oneself is needed. Great environment, but pushing forward as far as management needs to happen.

Pros : A great place to work, love most of the people here. Great to work with and great energy all around. Team focused and cross training is there.
Cons : I was hard to move beyond what I was brought in for. It took much more time than I thought is should have. The path forward isn't quick.
