    Pros

    The salary and their strong safety culture

    Cons

    If you are not billing hours your job is insecure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so dollar driven and you will create more security for the staff and a better work environment.

    Interview Details

    Contacted via email; and it turned out to be a surprise group interview with all the team members where you need to show your portfolio and talk about yourself. The interview lasted about 30-40 minutes. They ask you many questions about your skills and background to get an idea. They will also assess your personality during the interview so please appear positive and professional. In addition, the dress code is business formal- business casual but please dress conservatively.
