So much potential wasting away...

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsI enjoyed working with most of my co-workers.
vacation never got denied.
benefits were good, but before I left it seemed like those were getting ready to go down the drain too.

ConsWhen I started working here it seemed like a good place to work... for the first few weeks. It became apparent to me very quickly that I was not going to be able to expand my knowledge base or get recognition for my work while being employed here. I left this company because I was tired of being held back. It's too bad because I really liked the location.

The pay is mediocre, and it depends on what position you take. If you are looking at a salaried engineering job you will be under paid and work a lot. If you are someone with no education looking for an unskilled job then this might just be the place to work.
