I made a career of it.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Anchorage, AK

I have been working at SGS full-time

ProsPeople, freedom to learn, part of a winning team. The company does alot to make people feel like they belong to a team. They take everyone to the state fair, the whole lab goes to a rented out theater for a movie and pizza once a year, etc. We really come together as a team. You must be a team player to have fun and do a good work.

ConsWork can be challenging during the busy season.

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