I have been working at Burns & Wilcox full-time for more than a year

ProsMy colleagues are nice. The office is comfortable with a pleasant atmosphere. The owner is personable (he delivered the Christmas gifts last year). There are perks like free yoga, health fair, good benefits, accessible HQ location with moderate traffic, and 7.5 hour days. Management personnel are friendly, helpful, and flexible.

ConsWork can be boring, but that's better than stressful

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