    Large Family Company, with direct access to senior management. Great place to gain experience during the first years of professional experience

    I worked with Cotecna for 4 years and it was a wonderful experience. Very friendly staff, very friendly and hardworking management team.
    Given the opportunity, I'd choose them all over again.

    Cons

    The company was on a contract with the government and so everyone had to go home when it the contract expired and it wasn't renewed.
