Al Borkes, Former employee

Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee)

ProsThey go as far as they can to provide the best conditions of employment and tell upfront what to expect from the particular employment situation

ConsPerhaps due to the size of the company and complexity of their services, management feels far and detached, especially when working in remote locations

Advice to Senior ManagementDevise some way of connecting with remote employees so they feel more part of the team

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