    I worked at James McHugh full-time (Less than a year)


    The company has a very personable feel to it and members of the team are very autonomous which provides open communication and confidence between co workers.


    I had a positive experience with the company. Unfortunately in a fast moving market place the tangible skills may not always match up quickly enough with the current needs of a particular portion of the project. I was switched to a division which I had an interest but a different expectation of what my responsibility would be.

    Advice to Management

    The company could have been more receptive and provided more structure during initial introduction to the company and corporate culture.
