    They are a great organization to work for.

    Procurement Agent III (Current Employee)
    Rosemead, CA

    ProsI like there diversity and they are great people working there

    Conswhen you are a contract and have been doing the job for more than a year and once it opens as a full time position you do not automatic roll over to full time. You have to apply for the position and most of the time they hired some for outside. That make not sense

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great company to work for

    Program Analyst (Former Employee)
    Rosemead, CA

    ProsThis was a great company to work for. This was my first real corporate job and I had a wonderful experience here. The pay is very fair and the benefits are excellent. Although the company is very large there is a real sense of camaraderie and teamwork among the smaller divisions.

    ConsBecause the company is so massive, promotions and policy change can move fairly slowly. But for the most part they do an excellent job of recognizing and promoting talented individuals, eventually.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
