"Fantastic Place to Work"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Open up some more permanent positions so more people can join your amazing team for life!

Pros : I was only hired as a 1-year temp, but it was such an amazing experience. Everyone was so friendly and helpful.
Cons : I wasn't able to stay there longer because of the tight-knit work environment. I enjoyed my time there, though.
