A good place to work

Test Development Associate (Former Employee)
Iowa City, IA

ProsHumane, fairly enlightened work environment. The CEO and upper management are agents of change. The old guard is moving out and a much different profile exists now. Acts competitive although it is a nonprofit. Beautiful campus. Much improved internal communication. Departments may vary, but I found my input valued no matter what position I held. Onsite cafeteria a plus. Easy access from I-80 a plus for commuters.

ConsPay could be better; benefits are average to above average.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep on the path you have already charted.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
