Training Specialist (Current Employee)

ProsSolid company. Continues to evolve in an ever changing mobile world. The company has a strong culture of putting the customer first. You can feel good about the work you do here.

ConsFrequent restructuring of different divisions leads to displacement of employees. Several times in the last 3 years different groups have been displaced, sometimes affecting several hundred people.

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