Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Thousand Oaks, CA

ProsNumerous benefits and perks for permanent employees. Coworkers are amicable and intelligent. Laid-back workday with many challenges and opportunities to learn.

ConsPervasive and growing use of contingent staff for core company functions. These "disposable workers" perform the same functions as permanent employees, yet have zero job security and lack even the most basic benefits such as sick pay and health insurance.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
