Pretty cool company culture

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) City of Industry, CA

ProsMost likely this is a company focus on life/work balance. It is pretty developmental as well. Learned quite a bit during my 5 years with company. Many HQ activities are fun! They offer you a drink in an afternoon (based on fun activities). The coolest company I have ever worked for.

ConsMany changes in the management since 2010, which could be good and bad. During the turnaround time, all support functions were cut back quite a bit. If you are in those functional areas, you really don't have much career opportunities for advancement at all.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
