Review:

"Amazing To Work For"

Current Employee - Reviewed on August 04, 2017

The technology needs to be updated as to be appropriate for the current era and the elevators need to be upgraded.

Pros : I've been working here for a lot of years now and the work environment is excellent, the compensation is fantastic, and there are great benefits and raises. There is also an opportunity to move upward in position.
Cons : While not an ordinary complaint, the elevators are somewhat slow. The environment can get noisy at times. While some of the equipment is outdated, it still functions efficiently.
