    I was laid off after they purchased a company I was working for.

    Coordinator (Former Employee) Durham, NC

    ProsAlthough I didn't work for this company that long, it seems as though they may pay their employees pretty decently.

    ConsI can't really give any cons because I didn't work with them that long after the purchased the company that I had been working for for 6 years. If they want you, they want you and if they don't, they don't.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPast employees shouldn't be denied applying for positions within the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
