ProsGreat team environment, good compensation, good working environment.

ConsJob lacks interesting characteristics, lack of opportunity for career growth. Felt trapped in my department silo with no chances in other areas.

Advice to Senior ManagementKnow and value your smart, motivated employees. Make sure employees have a clear career director or they will lose motivation and move on to other opportunities.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
