      The people are very friendly and always there to answer questions. You will learn a lot at the company if you're in the right group with the right people.

      Cons

      The temps didn't seem too happy and overall, a lot of people seem dissatisfied.

      Advice to Management

      Employee morale seemed sort of low. I think should consider removing the temps and just having Full Time positions
