Work/Life Balance and Master of My Own Domain!

Recruiter (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

ProsVery refreshing to see a company with such a healthy attitude about work/life balance. For such a huge corporation, it doesn't feel like someone is hovering over me, asking WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR ME LATELY. I've been here a year and still amazed at how many times I'm thanked for just doing my job. I'm able to contact whoever I need to help me get my job done, without having to go through the chain of command In my position here I actually feel like I'm making a difference and a positive contribution to the company.

ConsWorking as a contractor with a 2 year limit. No degree, no conversion. :(

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