Review:

"A Fast Moving Workplace"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

It would be a good idea to hire on some more people to spread out the workload just a tiny bit.

Pros : Every day here you will have a new exciting challenge to tackle along with learning new skills to add to your work set.
Cons : It is easy to become overwhelmed with how fast things move here. You can expect to have problems if you slow down at all.
