Good place to be.

Intern (Current Employee)

ProsGood pay, a lot of good, friendly people to work with. Overall happy to be there.

ConsA lot of bureaucratic nonsense that comes from being a big company. Really good at collecting data and information. Not so good at actually doing anything with it.

Advice to Senior ManagementLimit some of the unnecessary busy paperwork.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
