Amazing people, very bureaucratic

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsThe people in my office were wonderful. There was mutual respect and everyone was helpful, I never experienced people with hidden agendas or passive aggressive behavior.

ConsOccasionally there are inefficiencies or hoops to jump through to get to a certain point (i.e. all the paperwork and meetings to apply for something basic like a raise or title change)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
