    I have been working at Cactus Communications for more than 3 years

    Pros

    plenty of work; can work as you wish and get paid regularly. Interesting assignments much of the time; bonuses paid for productivity; good dashboard

    Advice to Management

    Consider improving pay rates for those of us who have worked for several years and provided good quality work.
