    Pros

    Great working environment and team members that were helpful and always available when assistance was needed. Room for growth and moving up within the company is great.

    Cons

    Some teams were too large and having your voice heard during certain meetings was a little difficult when changes or updates were made or needed.

    Advice to Management

    The overall company is conducted with great respect and ethics. One advice would be better time management on projects so there is no risk of issues later down the road.
