Brave, Imaginative, and Decent

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsThere is an excellent work-life balance; overtime is hardly ever necessary. Every day is very busy but there is never any stressful pressure. Everyone is very supportive.

ConsAs with any corporation, there is a lot of bureaucracy - everyone is generally very friendly and approachable but responsibilities are clearly divided and there are relatively narrowly-defined career tracks. Sales is heavily emphasized.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
