      Nice and friendly coworkers, not bad working environment, competent managers, flexible hours, free parking facilities, onsite cafeteria, reasonable salaries and just a great place to work.

      Working environment is a little crowded, they fail to keep on staff when work decreases, especially contractors that are more experienced that staff employees. Not many team building occasions.

      Pros

      When I was there, the working environment was generally acceptable; most people were nice; managers were reasonable; the supervisors were not pushing. There were often in house training.

      Cons

      No idea how it turns out to be now. They did not financially support training outside of the company. The salary was a little lower than some other similar companies.
