Review:

"Focused people"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Mostly keep with what you are doing, but get rid or punish those bringing everyone else down. Team work is usually spot on.

Pros : I worked there for years and enjoyed it. The people were smart and friendly and we worked as a group with everything.
Cons : The place did have a few negative individuals that often brought down the group with them. HR needs to take hold on some members.
