Great place to work, as long as it's not the call center taking calls.

Innovation

Cons

Lost in the shuffle if you work in the call center. Your advice seems to go on deaf ears. When applying for internal position, you are denied with no help as to why and how to make yourself a better fit for the position. Human resource rules the company.

    Pros

    The company has done very well in a short amount of time which leaves it with an ample amount of cash in reserves. So it's not going anywhere for a while. Good company to work for if you're used to living in a very small fish bowl and have little to no clue what else is out there to be offered. People are great to work with.

    Cons

    The pay range for engineers is FAR below what the industry standard is. And they feed off new college graduates and people in dire situations that have little to no leverage to say anything about it. From what I've seen, they do not utilize people to the best of their abilities and it's difficult to get your voice heard when you have more experience dealing with specific situations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your mid level management to put some action behind their big mouth.
