    Provides exposure to a global environment and cultural experiences through travel and employee diversity. Excellent pay and benefits. How you attain the results are as important as the results themselves; a very honorable company.

    There isn't a consistent management style which can be unsettling and exciting at the same time. The organizational structure is very hierarchial.

    Satisfied employees are more productive.
