Great friendly nice people! Ideal working environment

Intern (Current Employee)
Carlsbad, CA

ProsLocated in Carlsbad, San Diego, Beautiful weather. Intelligent people to work for and with. Strong ideas and open minded. Very diverse and management is understanding.

ConsSome of the help desk Support is out source and majority are contractors. The company average is size; many sites around the country but not the same as the head quarters. Funds are limited on projects and there is a delay.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
